YER 2.0.0 FAT (Yellow Error Reference)

YER (Yellow Error Reference) is the most complete application to retrieve Mac’s error codes.
You should simply type the error number and press Enter or Return, then YER shows you the related error name and explanation just as stated by Source Headers. When there are more than one error using the same number, YER shows you all existing definition into a list easily navigable by keyboard’s keys. You may copy the error string you want into clipboard or view it into a more readable single window.
YER knows error codes defined in the following Headers:

  • AppleGuide.h
  • ATA.h
  • CardServices.h
  • CFURLAccess.h
  • CMApplication.h
  • Connections.h
