explain_bind_or_die(3)	   Library Functions Manual	explain_bind_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_bind_or_die - bind a name to a socket and report	errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/bind.h>
       void  explain_bind_or_die(int fildes, const struct sockaddr *sock_addr,
       int sock_addr_size);

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

       This  function  is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the fol-
       lowing example:
	      explain_bind_or_die(fildes, sock_addr, sock_addr_size);

       fildes  The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the bind(2) system call.

	       call.

       sock_addr_size
	       The sock_addr_size, exactly as to be passed to the bind(2) sys-
	       tem call.

       Returns:
	       This function only returns on success.  On failure,  prints  an
	       explanation and exits.
