This is the errno
for "No space left on device". Predominantly, the error occurs if trying to write
onto a full filesystem
. To confound
things, the System V IPC API
s (and, consequently, more new interfaces) treat object spaces like disk
s/filesystems, possibly returning this error
, too. This shouldn't be a problem, but like many others, the short description
: it should really be just "No space left".
The common pitfall of errno codes: they weren't made truly general.
