sysError values...

So thanks for finding this. I was Googling things like "Livecode list of 
system errors" or "LiveCode sysError value list" and so on. I was hoping 
or thinking LiveCode might have a FAQ or some document on their website 
listing them.

That said, I am not sure this page actually represents the values 
returned by the sysError() function in LiveCode. First of all it list 
two different errors with code "13":

dsIrqErr = 13, /*uninstalled interrupt error*/
sdmPRAMInitErr = 13, /*Slot PRAM could not be initialized.*/

Neither errors make much sense in the context of where in the script 
this error is occurring. The script is attempting to write a file and it 
is failing. I am 99% certain this issue is a permission issue (no write 
access to the folder). However, have the exact and correct error message 
corresponding to the sysError() function returning a value of 13 would 
be nice to help troubleshoot.
