Corrade::Utility::Error class

Error output handler.

Same as Debug, but by default writes output to standard error output. Thus it is possible to separate / mute Debug, Warning and Error outputs.

Base classes

class Debug
Debug output handler.

Derived classes

class Fatal
Warning output handler.

Public static functions

static auto output() -> std::ostream*
Current error output stream.
static auto isTty() -> bool
Whether current error output stream is a TTY.

Constructors, destructors, conversion operators

Error(Flags flags = {}) explicit
Default constructor.
Error(std::ostream* output, Flags flags = {}) explicit
Constructor.
Error(const Error&) deleted
Copying is not allowed.
Error(Error&&) defaulted
Move constructor.
~Error()
Destructor.

Public functions

auto operator=(const Error&) -> Error& deleted
Copying is not allowed.
auto operator=(Error&&) -> Error& deleted
Move assignment is not allowed.

Function documentation

static std::ostream* Corrade::Utility::Error::output()

Current error output stream.

Error output constructed with the Error(Flags) constructor will be using this output stream.

static bool Corrade::Utility::Error::isTty()

Whether current error output stream is a TTY.

Calls isTty(std::ostream*) with output of enclosing Error instance or with std::cerr if there isn't any.

Corrade::Utility::Error::Error(Flags flags = {}) explicit

Default constructor.

Parameters
flags Output flags

Inherits output of enclosing Error instance or uses std::cerr if there isn't any.

Corrade::Utility::Error::Error(std::ostream* output, Flags flags = {}) explicit

Constructor.

Parameters
output Stream where to put error output. If set to nullptr, no error output will be written anywhere.
flags Output flags

All new instances created using the default Error() constructor during lifetime of this instance will inherit the output set in output.

Corrade::Utility::Error::~Error()

Destructor.

Resets the output redirection back to the output of enclosing scope. If there was any output, adds newline at the end. Also resets output color modifier, if there was any.
