DIBIOL/DBL - Run-Time Errors
Run-time errors are normally fatal and automatically result in program termination.
Some, however, can be trapped using the DIBOL ONERROR statement, thus avoiding program
termination. Those run-time errors that can be trapped with the ONERROR statement are
called trappable; the non-trappable errors inevitably result in program termination.
Information messages only appear in conjunction with a trappable or non-trappable error.
The error number help descriptions contain the error number, the ident (abbreviation of
the message text), the severity, and a description of the common reason(s) for the error
