NAME

explain_bind_or_die - bind a name to a socket and report errors  

SYNOPSIS

#include <libexplain/bind.h>

void explain_bind_or_die(int fildes, const struct sockaddr *sock_addr, int sock_addr_size);  

DESCRIPTION

The explain_bind_or_die function is used to call the bind(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_bind(3), and then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

This function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following example:

explain_bind_or_die(fildes, sock_addr, sock_addr_size);
fildes
The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the bind(2) system call.
sock_addr
The sock_addr, exactly as to be passed to the bind(2) system call.
sock_addr_size
The sock_addr_size, exactly as to be passed to the bind(2) system call.
Returns:
This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
