 Write a list of values to the standard error device

     OUTERR(<exp list>) --> NIL


     <exp list> is a list of values to display and can consist of any
     combination of data types including memo.


     OUTERR() always returns NIL.


     OUTERR() is identical to OUTSTD() except that it writes to the standard
     error device rather than the standard output device.  Output sent to the
     standard error device bypasses the CA-Clipper console and output devices
     as well as any DOS redirection.  It is typically used to log error
     messages in a manner that will not interfere with the standard screen or
     printer output.


     .  This example displays an error message along with the date and
        time of occurrence to the screen:

        OUTERR("File lock failure", DATE(), TIME())

 Files   Library is CLIPPER.LIB.
