*=============================================================================
*
* Summary of the wcserr routines
* ------------------------------
* Most of the structs in WCSLIB contain a pointer to a wcserr struct as a
* member.  Functions in WCSLIB that return an error status code can also
* allocate and set a detailed error message in this struct which also
* identifies the function, source file, and line number where the error
* occurred.
*
* For example:
*
=     struct prjprm prj;
=     if (prjini(&prj)) {
=       // Print the error message to stderr.
=       wcsprintf_set(stderr);
=       wcserr_prt(prj.err);
=     }
*
* A number of utility functions used in managing the wcserr struct are for
* internal use only.  They are documented here solely as an aid to
* understanding the code.  They are not intended for external use - the API
* may change without notice!
*
*
* wcserr struct - Error message handling
* --------------------------------------
* The wcserr struct contains the numeric error code, a textual description of
* the error, and information about the function, source file, and line number
* where the error was generated.
*
*   int status
*     Numeric status code associated with the error, the meaning of which
*     depends on the function that generated it.  See the documentation for
*     the particular function.
*
*   int line_no
*     Line number where the error occurred as given by the __LINE__
*     preprocessor macro.
*
*   const char *function
*     Name of the function where the error occurred.
*
*   const char *file
*     Name of the source file where the error occurred as given by the
*     __FILE__ preprocessor macro.
*
*   char msg[WCSERR_MSG_LENGTH]
*     Informative error message.
*
*
* wcserr_enable() - Enable/disable error messaging
* ------------------------------------------------
* wcserr_enable() enables or disables wcserr error messaging.  By default it
* is disabled.
*
* PLEASE NOTE: This function is not thread-safe.
*
* Given:
*   enable    int       If true (non-zero), enable error messaging, else
*                       disable it.
*
* Function return value:
*             int       Status return value:
*                         0: Error messaging is disabled.
*                         1: Error messaging is enabled.
*
*
* wcserr_prt() - Print a wcserr struct
* ------------------------------------
* wcserr_prt() prints the error message (if any) contained in a wcserr struct.
* It uses the wcsprintf() functions.
*
* Given:
*   err       const struct wcserr*
*                       The error object.  If NULL, nothing is printed.
*
*   prefix    const char *
*                       If non-NULL, each output line will be prefixed with
*                       this string.
*
* Function return value:
*             int       Status return value:
*                         0: Success.
*                         2: Error messaging is not enabled.
*
*
* wcserr_set() - Fill in the contents of an error object
* ------------------------------------------------------
* INTERNAL USE ONLY.
*
* wcserr_set() fills a wcserr struct with information about an error.
*
* A convenience macro, WCSERR_SET, provides the source file and line number
* information automatically.
*
* Given and returned:
*   err       struct wcserr**
*                       Error object.
*
*                       If err is NULL, returns the status code given without
*                       setting an error message.
*
*                       If *err is NULL, allocates memory for a wcserr struct
*                       (provided that status is non-zero).
*
* Given:
*   status    int       Numeric status code to set.  If 0, then *err will be
*                       deleted and *err will be returned as NULL.
*
*   function  const char *
*                       Name of the function generating the error.  This
*                       must point to a constant string, i.e. in the
*                       initialized read-only data section ("data") of the
*                       executable.
*
*   file      const char *
*                       Name of the source file generating the error.  This
*                       must point to a constant string, i.e. in the
*                       initialized read-only data section ("data") of the
*                       executable such as given by the __FILE__ preprocessor
*                       macro.
*
*   line_no   int       Line number in the source file generating the error
*                       such as given by the __LINE__ preprocessor macro.
*
*   format    const char *
*                       Format string of the error message.  May contain
*                       printf-style %-formatting codes.
*
*   ...       mixed     The remaining variable arguments are applied (like
*                       printf) to the format string to generate the error
*                       message.
*
* Function return value:
*             int       The status return code passed in.
*
*
* wcserr_copy() - Copy an error object
* ------------------------------------
* INTERNAL USE ONLY.
*
* wcserr_copy() copies one error object to another.  Use of this function
* should be avoided in general since the function, source file, and line
* number information copied to the destination may lose its context.
*
* Given:
*   src       const struct wcserr*
*                       Source error object.  If src is NULL, returns 1.
*
* Returned:
*   dst       struct wcserr*
*                       Destination error object.  If NULL, no copy is made.
*
* Function return value:
*             int       Numeric status code of the source error object.
*
*
* WCSERR_SET() macro - Fill in the contents of an error object
* ------------------------------------------------------------
* INTERNAL USE ONLY.
*
* WCSERR_SET() is a preprocessor macro that helps to fill in the argument list
* of wcserr_set().  It takes status as an argument of its own and provides the
* name of the source file and the line number at the point where invoked.  It
* assumes that the err and function arguments of wcserr_set() will be provided
* by variables of the same names.
