SET ERRORS

Enables or suppresses the display of error messages.

Syntax

SET ERRORS ON|OFF

Comments

The ERRORS option is set ON by default.

When ERRORS is ON, error messages are displayed. Setting ERRORS to OFF suppresses the display of such messages. Error messages are of the form:

*** Error*** . . .

or:

***Zim System Error*** . . .

All types of messages can be simultaneously turned on or off with a SET MESSAGES command.

SET ERRORS has no effect on the logging of messages in the "error trace" file as this logging is always on and cannot be disabled.

Example

set messages on
set errors off

The preceding commands set warning and information messages on, but error messages off.
