The OSS ASN.1 compiler and runtime routines can both generate error and informatory messages. Use these error messages to help pinpoint problems in your ASN.1 syntax or application code.
Go directly to the Runtime Error Reference to look up OSS ASN.1 Runtime error messages by message number.
There are four types of messages issued by the various OSS ASN.1 Tools components:
Only the runtime function messages are available through this page. See OSS ASN.1 Compiler Errors to look up the other three types of messages.
All four types of messages carry a unique code that identifies each issued message. This message code consists of six characters: the first identifies the OSS ASN.1 Tools component that issued the message, next is a four-digit message number, and the last indicates the severity level of the message. See the following table for more details:

Informatory message (Level 0)
Typical runtime function signal message
A typical XER encoding error message also contains the line number and position of the error occurrence, as shown in the following example:
D0174E: Canonical XER restrictions are violated: 'XML encoding for contained types should have been used'; check field 'content' (type: BIT STRING) of PDU #1 'DataPacket' at line 1 position 4.
A runtime function message can also have fewer details, depending on the encoder/decoder and the debug options used.
