Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 16389 to 16393


Informix Error Code -16389 File name exceeds maximum length.
A filename cannot exceed 80 characters. If the name exceeds this length (if the message is not the result of some mistake in punctuation), you must rename it before you use it with the Debugger.
Informix Error Code -16390 Error occurred while reading file filename.
The Debugger encountered an error while it was trying to read a 4GL source file. Look for other messages (from the operating system, for example) that provide more details about the failure. Check that the file exists and that you have read permission.

Informix Error Code -16391 Internal error – attempt to highlight invalid line number.
Repeat the command. If the error recurs, please note all circumstances, and contact Informix Technical Support.
Informix Error Code -16392 No database name specified.
The database command requires the name of a database as its argument.
Informix Error Code -16393 Expression or variable contains invalid substring.
The Debugger cannot interpret a reference to a substring of a character value. Two numbers in square brackets specify a substring, as in the following expression:

The name charvalue must be the CHAR(n) data type; n1 specifies the first character of the substring, and n2 specifies the last. This error message appears when n1 is larger than n, the length of the character value, or when n1 is greater than n2.
Informix Error Code-16394 Cannot access the help messages.
The Debugger help messages are in the file fgldb.iem. The INSTALL program copies this file into the msg directory to which the INFORMIXDIR environment variable points. Probably the file was damaged, deleted, or read protected. Ask the system administrator to restore your access to it.
