The idea of using Universal Error Numbers dates back to the Metawindows project. All error messages provided from within Metawindows applications utilized a unique error message number. The Metawindows engine would output the appropriate error message via the Central Messaging Infrastructure by performing a look up based on the error code.

Universal Error Numbering Infrastructure brings this facility to open source Unix type systems, allowing error messages and documentation to be correlated.
