SYNOPSIS

#include <libexplain/fputc.h>

void explain_fputc_or_die(int c, FILE *fp);  

DESCRIPTION

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

explain_fputc_or_die(c, fp);
c
The c, exactly as to be passed to the fputc(3) system call.
fp
The fp, exactly as to be passed to the fputc(3) system call.
