# EC1318

## Synopsis

WARNING EC1318: Unable to open pragma file “[filename]”: [detail]

## Description

The named file was specified as a pragma file for emake with the `--emake-pragmafile` command-line option, but emake was unable to open the file. emake will proceed as if the `--emake-pragmafile` option had not been used.

## Reasons

The message provides detailed error information from the operating system regarding the failure. Most likely the filename was given incorrectly, so the error is a simple “file not found” failure.

## Fixes

Correct or remove the `--emake-pragmafile` option.
