explain_chown_or_die(3)	   Library Functions Manual    explain_chown_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_chown_or_die - change ownership of a file and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/chown.h>
       void explain_chown_or_die(const char *pathname, int owner, int group);

DESCRIPTION
       The  explain_chown_or_die  function is used to call the chown(2)	system
       call.  On failure an explanation	will be	printed	 to  stderr,  obtained
       from  explain_chown(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_chown_or_die(pathname, owner, group);

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

       owner   The owner, exactly as to	be passed to the chown(2) system call.

       group   The group, exactly as to	be passed to the chown(2) system call.

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