Detailed Description
       When a function fails, brlapi_errno will hold an error code to explain
       why it failed. It should always be reported somehow.

       Although most errors are reported that way, some (called exceptions)
       are reported asynchronously for efficiency reasons, because they always
       just report a programming error. The affected functions are:
       brlapi_setFocus, brlapi_write* and brlapi_sendRaw. When they happen,
       the next call to brlapi_something will close the connection and call
       the exception handler. If the exception handler returns, the
       brlapi_something function will return an end-of-file error.

       The default exception handler (brlapi_defaultExceptionHandler()) dumps
       the guilty packet before abort()ing. It can be replaced by calling
       brlapi_setExceptionHandler(). For instance, the Java and Python
       bindings use this for raising a Java or Python exception that may be
       caught.

Typedef Documentation
   typedef void(BRLAPI_STDCALL * brlapi__exceptionHandler_t) (brlapi_handle_t
       *handle, int error, brlapi_packetType_t type, const void *packet,
       size_t size)
   typedef void(BRLAPI_STDCALL * brlapi_exceptionHandler_t) (int error,
       brlapi_packetType_t type, const void *packet, size_t size)
       Types for exception handlers

       Types of exception handlers which are to be given to
       brlapi_setExceptionHandler() and brlapi__setExceptionHandler().

       Parameters:
           handle is the handle corresponding to the guilty connection;
           error is a BRLAPI_ERROR_ error code;
           type is the type of the guilty packet;
           packet points to the content of the guilty packet (might be a
           little bit truncated);
           size gives the guilty packet's size.

   typedef uint32_t brlapi_packetType_t
       Type for packet type. Only unsigned can cross networks, 32bits

Function Documentation
   void BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi__defaultExceptionHandler (brlapi_handle_t *
       handle, int error, brlapi_packetType_t type, const void * packet,
       size_t size)
   brlapi__exceptionHandler_t BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi__setExceptionHandler
       (brlapi_handle_t * handle, brlapi__exceptionHandler_t handler)
   int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi__strexception (brlapi_handle_t * handle, char *
       buffer, size_t bufferSize, int error, brlapi_packetType_t type, const
       void * packet, size_t packetSize)
   void BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_defaultExceptionHandler (int error,
       brlapi_packetType_t type, const void * packet, size_t size)
   brlapi_error_t* BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_error_location (void)
       Get per-thread error location

       In multithreaded software, brlapi_error is thread-specific, so api.h
       cheats about the brlapi_error token and actually calls
       brlapi_error_location().

       This gets the thread specific location of global variable brlapi_error

   const char* BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_getPacketTypeName (brlapi_packetType_t
       type)
       Get plain packet type

       brlapi_getPacketTypeName() returns the plain packet type name
       corresponding to its argument.

   void BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_perror (const char * s)
       Print a BrlAPI error message

       brlapi_perror() reads brlapi_error, and acts just like perror().

   brlapi_exceptionHandler_t BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_setExceptionHandler
       (brlapi_exceptionHandler_t handler)
       Set a new exception handler

       brlapi_setExceptionHandler() replaces the previous exception handler
       with the handler parameter. The previous exception handler is returned
       to make chaining error handlers possible.

       The default handler just prints the exception and abort()s.

   const char* BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_strerror (const brlapi_error_t * error)
       Get plain error message

       brlapi_strerror() returns the plain error message corresponding to its
       argument.

   int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_strexception (char * buffer, size_t bufferSize,
       int error, brlapi_packetType_t type, const void * packet, size_t
       packetSize)
       Describes an exception

       brlapi_strexception() puts a text describing the given exception in
       buffer.

       The beginning of the guilty packet is dumped as a sequence of hex
       bytes.

       Returns:
           the size of the text describing the exception, following
           snprintf()'s semantics.

Variable Documentation
   const char* brlapi_errfun
       Shorthand for brlapi_error.errfun

   const char* brlapi_errlist[]
       Error message list

       These are the string constants used by brlapi_perror().

   int brlapi_errno
       Shorthand for brlapi_error.errno

   brlapi_error_t brlapi_error
       Global variable brlapi_error

       brlapi_error is a global left-value containing the last error
       information. Its errno field is not reset to BRLAPI_ERROR_SUCCESS on
       success.

       This information may be copied in brlapi_error_t variables for later
       use with the brlapi_strerror function.

   int brlapi_gaierrno
       Shorthand for brlapi_error.gaierrno

   int brlapi_libcerrno
       Shorthand for brlapi_error.libcerrno

   const int brlapi_nerr
       Number of error messages
