Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 16377 to 16383


Informix Error Code -16377 Cannot retrieve values of global variables before execution begins.
A PRINT command cannot display the value of a global program variable until after execution begins. Invoke the RUN or CALL command to begin execution and then repeat the PRINT command. In this situation, you can specify constants or the names of global variables as arguments of CALL. (You might have to set a breakpoint or press the Interrupt key to suspend the program before normal termination.)
Informix Error Code -16378 A small positive integer is expected.
You cannot enter a TIMEDELAY command without an argument, or with a negative number as the argument. Repeat the command, specifying zero or a positive integer as the number of seconds delay in the Source window or Command window.

Informix Error Code -16381 Cannot set breakpoint or tracepoint – no current module.
You cannot set a breakpoint or tracepoint without referencing a module or function unless a program module is in the Source window. You probably ignored an error message that appeared when you were unable to load a 4GL source file.

You used a READ command, either nested in an initialization file or in the input file of another READ command, that refers to one of the following:
To itself
To a previous READ command input file
To a .4db initialization file that has not yet completed execution
You cannot execute a READ command that might create an infinite loop.
Informix Error Code -16383 Number of nested read commands limit exceeded.
You started a READ command that invoked another, which invoked another, and so on for more than ten nested READ commands. You must simplify your arrangement of .4db command files.
