Error Manager

The Support Library contains a default error manager that displays all error messages. If desired, you can write a custom error manager that, for example, analyzes an error and logs it, displays it, and determines whether the accessory should continue processing or terminate. To use a custom error manager, you must write the error manager and then declare it in the GenFormat parameter file. Refer to the DATABridge Programmer’s Reference for instructions on writing a custom error manager.

Use the following syntax to declare a custom written error manager in the GenFormat parameter file:

ERROR MANAGER errormanagername IN "patchfiletitle"

where errormanagername is the name you have given to the error manager and patchfiletitle is the file name of the ALGOL patch file containing the error manager.
