Very good, thoughtful post (++). There's just one point which baffles:

needed but not necessary files

What should this convey? To me, "needed" pretty much implies "necessary" and vice-versa. If you could clear that up then you would have a great sequence of categories.

    well the words seem identical in their sense but what i meant was, for example, an output file that cannot be written. This might not be a fatal error: you may receive ERROR: out.txt is in use and $0 cannot lock it that is different from FATAL cannot read the configuration you supplied even if it exists

    So probably the best word is complementary instead of needed, thanks for the comment.


    There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
    Reinvent the wheel, then learn The Wheel; may be one day you reinvent one of THE WHEELS.

      I was pondering on this for a few minutes, and I might describe ERROR as "locally fatal" as compared to being "globally fatal"

      The current operation is impossible, but the application as a whole can continue operating.
