OS/2 Distributed Automation Edition Error Processor

       Disclosed is a function which can be invoked when an
informational message, error condition (such as a logic error), or an
invalid return code occurs.  It provides debug/diagnostic information
for Distributed Automated Edition* (DAE) applications.  It is
implemented in an OS/2* DLL library and is loaded on demand.

      Error Processor functions are used depending on the severity of
the error in an application.  The calling function determines the
severity and provides the following input to the Error Processor:
  - Severity code indicating the action level or combination of
actions that the Error Processor needs to perform.  Actions for
severity codes are:
     * Send an event message to an event logger.  Message text is
stored in an OS/2 message file. When the message is sent to a local
or central event logger, an application may pass real time parameters
to be included in the final formatted event log text.
     * Send an alert to Distributed Automated Edition which will
visually indicate a message to a user.
     * Write application Distributed Automated Edition "Request Data
Structure" information to an internal log.  This log will enable a
user to determine the type of error and the application that is
generating the error.
     * A combination of the above actions.
