Revision 1.1, Sat Sep 3 05:07:51 1994 UTC (27 years, 9 months ago) by jtc
Branch: MAIN

__strerror() and __strsignal() have been broken out into their own files
and use message catalogs if NLS is defined.
Increased the size of char buffers used by strerror() and strsignal();
the error and signal strings may be much longer in some locales.
