explain_execvp_or_die(3)   Library Functions Manual   explain_execvp_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_execvp_or_die - execute a file and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/execvp.h>
       void explain_execvp_or_die(const	char *pathname,	char *const *argv);

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_execvp_or_die function is used to call the execvp(3)	system
       call.  On failure an explanation	will be	printed	 to  stderr,  obtained
       from  explain_execvp(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_execvp_or_die(pathname, argv);

       pathname
	       The  pathname,  exactly as to be	passed to the execvp(3)	system
	       call.

       argv    The argv, exactly as to be passed to the	execvp(3) system call.

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