   Here is John Townsend's famous TOS error list.


   The GEM function which displays "TOS Error #..." does not display
   in the alert box the actual error value returned by GEMDOS or BIOS.
   Those return values are negative numbers (e.g. GEMDOS error -66 is
   "Invalid program load format"). Negative GEMDOS error returns are
   translated nach MS-DOS error numbers for the form_error() alert box
   you see. BIOS errors result in a "Critical Error" alert, which gi-
   ves you a chance to retry the disk access that caused the error.

   For those of you with a furniture fetish, here's a table:

                             GEMDOS  MS-DOS

   rors, and some GEMDOS error codes do not exist in MS-DOS.
