I just put a new page up based on a parsing thing I was working on the other night. Basically, it lists the error codes in OS X 10.x by type. Enjoy: http://krypted.com/guides/comprehensive-list-of-mac-os-x-error-codes/

When doing a data migration in OS X, you find that you often want to build a list of files on the source and the target media and then compare the two lists. When you do such a copy it’s important to verify that the data is all there. To find all the files on a drive, use the find command. If you’re in the working directory of the volume you’re transfering files from, the following command would show you all of the files on the volume:
find . -name "*"
To dump the contents to a file, use the > followed by the filename. So to list the contents of a volume into a file called source.txt, use:
find . -name "*" > source.txt
To do the same on the target volume, change the working directory to the target location and re-run, this time with a different name, like target.txt:
find . -name "*" > target.txt
To then compare the two, you could use diff:
diff source.txt target.txt
You could also use a third party tool to compare the files graphically. While there is a tool built into OS X for this, I like to use TextWrangler.

Apparently the link here was bad so reposting with a good link and changing the text… From their site:
Do you work in a windows dominant environment? Are your network drives packed with Windows Shortcuts that point to directories and documents? Are you tired of starting a windows machine just to change your windows domain password? Do you want to copy path names to an email? Here is the answer: WinShortcutter!
WinShortcutter is a collection of small and useful utilities that are primarily focused at people working in a windows dominant office environment with a weak Mac support.
