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.
Informix Error Code -16395 Cannot compare BLOBs to any other value.
You asked the Debugger to compare a TEXT or BYTE variable in an expression. You cannot use variables of these types for comparisons. (However, you can refer to a substring of a TEXT variable.)

Informix Error Code -16396 Cannot use BLOBs in this expression.
You asked the Debugger to use a TEXT or BYTE variable in an expression. Variables of these types can be displayed only with PRINT or DUMP, or assigned null values with LET.
Informix Error Code -16397 Can print only BLOB variables with program =.
The PROGRAM = clause of the PRINT statement is used to specify an external program (for instance, a text editor) that can display the contents of a BYTE or TEXT value. The clause is not relevant with any other type of data.

Informix Error Code -16398 Illegal BLOB file name. Null name not permitted.
The 4GL LOCATE statement has located the BYTE or TEXT variable in a file. However, the filename for the variable is a null string. Because the file does not exist, the Debugger cannot do anything with it.
Informix Error Code -16399 No program name specified.
The PROGRAM = clause of the PRINT statement is used to specify an external program (for instance, a text editor) that can display the contents of a BYTE or TEXT value. In this command, the keyword was specified, but no program name followed it.
Informix Error Code -16400 Bad file name name.
The filename that is shown is not appropriate for its intended use. It is too long, contains improper special characters, or is null. Enter an appropriate filename.
