NAME
       error - return an error

SYNOPSIS
       Rerror tag[2] ename[64]

DESCRIPTION
       The  Rerror  request  (there  is  no Terror) is used to return an error
       string, of length 64 (ERRLEN in <&lt;libc.h>&gt;), describing the failure of  a
       transaction.   It  replaces  the corresponding reply message that would
       accompany a successful call; its tag is that of the request.
