Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1326) scanty error message when writing to uri_file fails
Date Tue, 01 Nov 2011 12:04:32 GMT


Filipe Manana commented on COUCHDB-1326:

Thanks Rogutės

However the following will not work:

+        Error2 -> throw(io:format("Failed to write uri_file ~s, error ~p~n",
+              [UriFile, Error2]))

You'll want to call io_lib:format instead, which returns an IOList. Then you should call lists:flatten
over the result of io_lib:format to make sure we get a more human readable string.
Wanna give it a 2nd try? :)

> CouchDB crashes when it fails writing to uri_file (set from the [couchdb] section). The
error message is too vague to understand what's going on: "{{badmatch,{error,enoent}}". At
least the filename should be mentioned.
> P.S.
> I'd say it's all Erlang's fault, because file:write_file() doesn't report the file name
on errors.
