NAME

explain_fpathconf_or_die - get file configuration and report errors  

SYNOPSIS

#include <libexplain/fpathconf.h>

long explain_fpathconf_or_die(int fildes, int name);  

DESCRIPTION

The explain_fpathconf_or_die function is used to call the fpathconf(3) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_fpathconf(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:

long result = explain_fpathconf_or_die(fildes, name);
fildes
The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the fpathconf(3) system call.
name
The name, exactly as to be passed to the fpathconf(3) system call.
Returns:
This function only returns on success, see fpathconf(3) for more information. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
