Left Hand Pointer

$ECODE

M[UMPS] by Example

Right Hand Pointer

Introduced in the 1995 ANSI M[UMPS] language standard.

This variable provides information about the error-conditions that are unresolved.

If $ECODE[",M6," Write "Undefined local variable"

Note: the leftmost character of the value of $ECode is always a comma. This means that every error code that is stored in $ECode is surrounded by commas. If $ECode contains "M61", it would also contain "M6", so it is better to include the commas in the value to check for: check whether $ECode contains ",M6,".

For more examples of the use of special variable $ECode, see the function $STack.
