The OSS Nokalva ASN.1 compiler displays error and warning messages that may relate to the ASN.1 input syntax or to the application code.
In ASN.1 Studio, the compiler error messages are displayed in the Diagnostic pane. When you click a message in the Diagnostic pane, the error location is highlighted in the corresponding input file.
There are four types of messages issued by various components of the OSS ASN.1 Tools:
The ASN.1 syntax checker messages have the following format:
