Substitute an integer for the first occurrence of a marker found in the current long error message.
VARIABLE I/O DESCRIPTION -------- --- -------------------------------------------------- marker I A substring of the error message to be replaced. number I The integer to substitute for marker.
marker is a character string which marks a position in the long error message where a character string representing an integer is to be substituted. Leading and trailing blanks in marker are not significant. Case IS significant; "XX" is considered to be a different marker from "xx". number is an integer whose character representation will be substituted for the first occurrence of marker in the long error message. This occurrence of the substring indicated by marker will be removed, and replaced by a character string, with no leading or trailing blanks, representing number.
This routine updates the current long error message. If no marker is found, (e.g., in the case that the long error message is blank), the routine has no effect. If multiple instances of the marker designated by marker are found, only the first one is replaced. If the character string resulting from the substitution exceeds the maximum length of the long error message, the characters on the right are lost. No error is signalled. This routine has no effect if changes to the long message are not allowed.
1. In this example, the marker is: # The current long error message is: "Invalid operation value. The value was #". After the call, errint_c ( "#", 5 ); The long error message becomes: "Invalid operation value. The value was 5". 2. In this example, the marker is: XX The current long error message is: "Left endpoint exceeded right endpoint. The left"// "endpoint was: XX. The right endpoint was: XX." After the call, errint_c ( "XX", 5 ); The long error message becomes: "Left endpoint exceeded right endpoint. The left"// "endpoint was: 5. The right endpoint was: XX."
The caller must ensure that the message length, after sub- stitution is performed, doesn't exceed LMSGLN characters.
1) The error SPICE(EMPTYSTRING) is signalled if the input string does not contain at least one character, since the input string cannot be converted to a Fortran-style string in this case. 2) The error SPICE(NULLPOINTER) is signalled if the input string pointer is null.
