19.5.3 Class error_condition [syserr.errcondition] Class error_condition overview [syserr.errcondition.overview]

The class error_condition describes an object used to hold values identifying error conditions. [ Note: error_condition values are portable abstractions, while error_code values ([syserr.errcode]) are implementation specific.  — end note ]
