SYNOPSIS

#include <libexplain/creat.h>

void explain_creat_or_die(const char *pathname, int mode);  

DESCRIPTION

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

explain_creat_or_die(pathname, mode);
pathname
The pathname, exactly as to be passed to the creat(2) system call.
mode
The mode, exactly as to be passed to the creat(2) system call.
Returns:
This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
