COMP_ERR(1)                  MySQL Database System                 COMP_ERR(1)

       comp_err - compile MySQL error message file

       comp_err [options]

       comp_err creates the errmsg.sys file that is used by mysqld to determine the error messages to display for
       different error codes.  comp_err normally is run automatically when MySQL is built. It compiles the errmsg.sys
       file from the text file located at sql/share/errmsg-utf8.txt in MySQL source distributions.

       comp_err also generates mysqld_error.h, mysqld_ername.h, and sql_state.h header files.

       For more information about how error messages are defined, see the MySQL Internals Manual[1].

       Invoke comp_err like this:

           shell> comp_err [options]
