SYNOPSIS

#include <libexplain/getcwd.h>

void explain_getcwd_or_die(char *buf, size_t size);  

DESCRIPTION

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

explain_getcwd_or_die(buf, size);
buf
The buf, exactly as to be passed to the getcwd(2) system call.
size
The size, exactly as to be passed to the getcwd(2) system call.
