Here is the complete list of the error symbols in standard Emacs,
grouped by concept. The list includes each symbol's message (on the
error-message property of the symbol) and a cross reference to a
description of how the error can occur.
Each error symbol has an
error-conditions property that is a
list of symbols. Normally this list includes the error symbol itself
and the symbol
error. Occasionally it includes additional
symbols, which are intermediate classifications, narrower than
error but broader than a single error symbol. For example, all
the errors in accessing files have the condition
As a special exception, the error symbol
quit does not have the
error, because quitting is not considered an error.
See section Errors, for an explanation of how errors are generated and handled.
