13 Error strings.

To convert a gdbm error code into English text, use this routine:

gdbm interface: const char * gdbm_strerror (gdbm_error errno)

Converts errno (which is an integer value) into a human-readable descriptive text. Returns a pointer to a static string. The caller must not alter or free the returned pointer.

The errno argument is usually the value of the global variable gdbm_errno. See section gdbm_errno.
