Appendix B Error Messages

This chapter lists the error and warning messages for the DOSBook tools (SVF2OLH and OLH2CLH).

SVF2OLH: Too many arguments

SVF2OLH only needs one argument; the path and name of the publication file. This is a file which normally has the extension .PUB. There are some optional switches; use /? or /H, which results in a brief help text, to get a complete list.

SVF2OLH: Unknown argument: <string>

Unknown switch.

SVF2OLH: Duplicate argument: <string>

Either more than one filename has been supplied, or a particular switch has occurred more than once.

SVF2OLH: Expected language specifier

Missing language name after /L switch; supply the first part of the intended .HOH file. For example, for FRENCH.HOH use /L FRENCH.

SVF2OLH: Expected unique ID code

Missing ID number after /I switch.

SVF2OLH: Unique ID code must be a number: <string>

The ID code must be a decimal number.

SVF2OLH: Expected title string

Missing title string after /T switch. Supply a string, in double quotes if there are spaces in the string.

SVF2OLH: No publication file given

SVF2OLH must be given a publication file to process.

SVF2OLH: Overflow in unresolved MARKER space

The internal buffer used for storing references to markers which are defined later in the publication is too small. This requires a program modification.

SVF2OLH: Expected country code number

The option /C was not followed by a country code number.

SVF2OLH: Expected code page number

The option /P was not followed by a code page.

SVF2OLH: Country code must be a number:

The argument supplied as the country code is not a number.

SVF2OLH: Code page must be a number:

The argument supplied as the code page is not a number.

SVF2OLH: FAR string space overflow

The compiler has run out of space to store strings. Increase your available TPA by removing any TSRs, and by other means detailed in your operating system manual.

SVF2OLH: Contents paragraph overflow

An internal error has occurred. Contact your local sales representative for support.

SVF2OLH: Need National Language Support

SVF2OLH: Out of help memory space

The compiler has exhausted the memory reserved for dynamic allocation.

SVF2OLH: Out of name storage space

The compiler has exhausted the memory reserved for names. A program change is required.

The file string could not be created.

SVF2OLH: <string>: (<number>), column <number>: Only one `>'

A ``>'' character is missing.

SVF2OLH: <string>: (<number>): Line too long

A particular primary and secondary key index command can only occur once in a publication.

Warning: <filename>: (<number>): Duplicate marker ``<string>''. IGNORED

A marker string has been defined more than once.

Warning: <filename>: (<number>): Missing highlighted PopUp or Link word before reference command: <string>. IGNORED

Warning: <filename>: (<number>): Missing reference command after PopUp or Link word. IGNORED

A reference command must immediately follow a piece of text highlighted as either a pop-up or a link.

Warning: <filename>: (<number>): Found tag `<string>' where `<string>' expected
