Re: errored out, or erred out?
Which do you use when referring to records that generated error messages
while being processed?
Neither. I write: "The system returns an error message."
I was going to write that sentence another way, but I ran into a grammar difficulty:
1. If you or the system screw up, the system returns...
2. If you or the system screws up, the system returns...
I'm still puzzling over it.
