Defined in header <ios>
std::error_code make_error_code( std::io_errc e ) noexcept;
(since C++11)

Constructs an std::error_code object from a value of type std::io_errc as if by return std::error_code(static_cast<int>(e), std::iostream_category()).

This function is called by the constructor of std::error_code with an std::io_errc argument.


[edit] Parameters

e - error code number

[edit] Return value

A value of type std::error_code that holds the error code number from e associated with the error category "iostream".

[edit] Example

#include <iostream>
#include <system_error>
int main()
    std::error_code ec = std::make_error_code(std::io_errc::stream);
    // This works because of the overloaded method
    //    and the is_error_code_enum specialization.
    ec = std::io_errc::stream;
    std::cout << "Error code from io_errc::stream has category "
              << ec.category().name() << '\n';


Error code from io_errc::stream has category iostream
