explain_acct_or_die(3)	   Library Functions Manual	explain_acct_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_acct_or_die  -  switch  process accounting on or	off and	report
       errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/acct.h>
       void explain_acct_or_die(const char *pathname);
       int explain_acct_on_error(const char *pathname))

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_acct_or_die function	is used	to  call  the  acct(2)	system
       call.  On  failure  an  explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from the	explain_acct(3)	function, and then the process	terminates  by
       calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The  explain_acct_on_error  function is used to call the	acct(2)	system
       call. On	failure	an explanation will be	printed	 to  stderr,  obtained
       from the	explain_acct(3)	function, but still returns to the caller.

       pathname
	       The  pathname,  exactly	as  to be passed to the	acct(2)	system
	       call.

RETURN VALUE
       The explain_acct_or_die function	only returns on	success,  see  acct(2)
       for  more  information. On failure, prints an explanation and exits, it
       does not	return.

       The explain_acct_on_error function always returns the value  return  by
       the wrapped acct(2) system call.

EXAMPLE
       The  explain_acct_or_die	 function  is intended to be used in a fashion
       similar to the following	example:
	      explain_acct_or_die(pathname);

       acct(2) switch process accounting on or off

       explain_acct(3)
