Hi Bruno,

By the way, instead of defining a macro ERRNO_DISPLAY_FMT (that ends with

Users who want to user columns can then do things like

"%-.*s", no?  Anyway, that is better.  There's enough to printf
that even after all these years, it isn't all at the tips of my fingers....:)
Maybe it's *because* of all the years, I learned it in a predecessor
form and haven't gone back to learn all of what featuritis did to it. :-D

Please feel free to tweak it.  I think that might be easier than
seeing if I get exactly what you mean, retrying and cycling again.

But through this process of proposing, retrying, and listening to comments

Sure.  It depends somewhat on your (and others') patience, too.
This is kind-of a play time activity.  My focus this weekend is
actually deferred tax returns (due Monday night because I had
this employer who misrepresented my earnings and .....)
The next two weekends are booked, then I go to Europe for a couple
of weeks and when I get back I suspect there will be some chores
around the house.  In other words, it might be a bit like the
libposix stuff.  With another hand, it goes faster.

It will not find the mk-err-names.sh script in the first place. The Makefile
rules are executed in the build directory.

OK, the invocation has to have a "where is it?" search.

Please, that's part of submitting a gnulib module: adding it to your
gnulib working directory, doing "./gnulib-tool --create-testdir ..." of it,
and optionally testing this testdir with "mkdir b; cd b; ../configure; make".

Whenever I have both time and inclination (a roundtuit).  Maybe this fall,
unless someone out there wants to play, too.

Cheers - Bruce
