DB_ENV->set_errpfx(DB_ENV *dbenv, const char *errpfx);  

Set the prefix string that appears before error messages issued by Berkeley DB.

The DB->set_errpfx() and DB_ENV->set_errpfx() methods do not copy the memory to which the errpfx parameter refers; rather, they maintain a reference to it. Although this allows applications to modify the error message prefix at any time (without repeatedly calling the interfaces), it means the memory must be maintained until the handle is closed.

The DB_ENV->set_errpfx() method configures operations performed using the specified DB_ENV handle, not all operations performed on the underlying database environment.

The DB_ENV->set_errpfx() method may be called at any time during the life of the application.



The errpfx parameter is the application-specified error prefix for additional error messages.
