       forms will be available. The errstr utility can be used to display the
       meaning of the hex code. The hex code is the hex digits after the
       second colon.

OPTIONS
       None.

EXAMPLES
       The error code:

        27594:error:2006D080:lib(32):func(109):reason(128):bss_file.c:107:

       can be displayed with:

        openssl errstr 2006D080

       to produce the error message:

        error:2006D080:BIO routines:BIO_new_file:no such file
