The crew that writes BusyBox does a great job of writing tight, compact, code. . . .

But their idea of "descriptive error messages" leaves a bit (no pun intended) to be desired.

I expect that any day now, in their battle against "code bloat" they are going to settle on using just one general purpose error message:
"Command either not recognized or was unable to complete properly."

Or maybe just:
-EPEBKAC
For any and everything that returns an error code.
