/usr/ccs/bin/error [options ] [files ]

Read compiler error messages, and insert them into the source files that generated them. This makes it easier to work during the typical edit-compile-debug cycle. Typical usage would be:

cc -O -c

 2>&1 | error



Do not edit any files; print errors on standard output.


Query. error prompts for a y or n response before inserting error messages into a file.


Print statistics about the different kinds of errors.


After inserting error messages into the source files, run vi on the files.

-t list

Only process files whose suffixes appear in list . Suffixes are dot-separated, and wildcards are allowed, but should be quoted to prevent interpretation by the shell.
