NAME

explain_futimes_or_die - change file timestamps and report errors  

SYNOPSIS

#include <libexplain/futimes.h>

void explain_futimes_or_die(int fildes, const struct timeval *tv);  

DESCRIPTION

The explain_futimes_or_die function is used to call the futimes(3) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_futimes(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_futimes_or_die(fildes, tv);
fildes
The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the futimes(3) system call.
tv
The tv, exactly as to be passed to the futimes(3) system call.
Returns:
This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
