explain_execve_or_die(3)   Library Functions Manual   explain_execve_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_execve_or_die - execute program and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/execve.h>
       void  explain_execve_or_die(const  char	*pathname,  const  char	*const
       *argv, const char *const	*envp);

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_execve_or_die function is used to call the execve(2)	system
       call.   On  failure  an explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from explain_execve(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_execve_or_die(pathname, argv, envp);

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

       argv    The argv, exactly as to be passed to the	execve(2) system call.

       envp    The envp, exactly as to be passed to the	execve(2) system call.

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