                         char *strerror( char *str )

       - prototype in string.h

       - str should contain your customized error message to which a system
         error message will be appended
       - allows you to generate customized error messages, returning a
         pointer to a null-terminated string containing an error message
       - if str is NULL, the return value contains the most recently
         generated system error message; this string is null-terminated
       - if str is not NULL, the return value contains, a colon, a space,
         the most recently generated system error message, and a newline;
         with length of str being 94 characters or less
       - this function generates the error string but does NOT print it
       - for accurate error-handling, strerror should be called as soon
         as a library routine generates an error return
