You aren't the only one. These questions have been asked before by a
number of people. In fact I had to look at this at one point when I was
getting these codes. Of course I just looked at the source code and
never looked for documentation.
I will tell you that this is a combination of bits so it's not just a
number. Each bit represents a test code that failed so you have quite a
bit to look at.
