/*
** Description:   Localizable error code to string function.
**
**
** NSPR provides a mechanism for converting an error code to a
** descriptive string, in a caller-specified language.
**
** Error codes themselves are 32 bit (signed) integers.  Typically,
** the high order 24 bits are an identifier of which error table the
** error code is from, and the low order 8 bits are a sequential error
** number within the table.  NSPR supports error tables whose first
** error code is not a multiple of 256, such error code assignments
** should be avoided when possible.
**
** Error table 0 is defined to match the UNIX system call error table
** (sys_errlist); this allows errno values to be used directly in the
** library.  Other error table numbers are typically formed by
** compacting together the first four characters of the error table
** name.  The mapping between characters in the name and numeric
** values in the error code are defined in a system-independent
** fashion, so that two systems that can pass integral values between
** them can reliably pass error codes without loss of meaning; this
** should work even if the character sets used are not the
** same. (However, if this is to be done, error table 0 should be
** avoided, since the local system call error tables may differ.)
**
** Libraries defining error codes need only provide a table mapping
** error code numbers to names and default English descriptions,
** calling a routine to install the table, making it ``known'' to NSPR
** library.  Once installed, a table may not be removed.  Any error
** code the library generates can be converted to the corresponding
** error message.  There is also a default format for error codes
** accidentally returned before making the table known, which is of
** the form "unknown code foo 32", where "foo" would be the name of
** the table.
**
** Normally, the error code conversion routine only supports the
** languages "i-default" and "en", returning the error-table-provided
** English description for both languages.  The application may
** provide a localization plugin, allowing support for additional
** languages.
