pmem2_errormsgU()/pmem2_errormsgW() - returns last error message
#include <libpmem2.h> const char *pmem2_errormsgU(void); const wchar_t *pmem2_errormsgW(void);
NOTE: The PMDK API supports UNICODE. If the PMDK_UTF8_API macro is defined, basic API functions are expanded to the UTF-8 API with postfix U. Otherwise they are expanded to the UNICODE API with postfix W.
If an error is detected during the call to a libpmem2(7) function, the application may retrieve an error message describing the reason of the failure from pmem2_errormsgU()/pmem2_errormsgW(). The error message buffer is thread-local; errors encountered in one thread do not affect its value in other threads. The buffer is never cleared by any library function; its content is significant only when the return value of the immediately preceding call to a libpmem2(7) function indicated an error. The application must not modify or free the error message string. Subsequent calls to other library functions may modify the previous message.
The pmem2_errormsgU()/pmem2_errormsgW() function returns a pointer to a static buffer containing the last error message logged for the current thread. If errno was set, the error message may include a description of the corresponding error code as returned by strerror(3).
