ML Error Messages

The error messages generated by MASM components fall into three categories:

  • Fatal errors. These indicate a severe problem that prevents the utility from completing its normal process.
  • Nonfatal errors. The utility may complete its process. If it does, its result is not likely to be the one you want.
  • Warnings. These messages indicate conditions that may prevent you from getting the results you want.

All error messages take the following form:

Utility: Filename (Line) : [Error_type} (Code): Message_text
Utility
The program that sent the error message.
Filename
The file that contains the error-generating condition.
Line
The approximate line where the error condition exists.
Error_type
Fatal Error, Error, or Warning.
Code
The unique 5- or 6-digit error code.
Message_text
A short and general description of the error condition.
