NAME

notcurses_error - granular Notcurses error reporting

SYNOPSIS

#include <notcurses/ncerrs.h>

typedef enum {
  NCERR_SUCCESS = 0,
  NCERR_NOMEM = ENOMEM,
  NCERR_EOF = 0x20464f45, // matches AVERROR_EOF
} nc_err_e;

DESCRIPTION

Various functions in Notcurses return granular information about the cause of an error. When done, this information is returned through an nc_err_e.

NOTES

The goal is to abstract the union of errors returned by supported operating systems and the libraries on which Notcurses depends. Thus nc_err_e is a union of members of POSIX and FFmpeg.
