explain_fread_or_die(3)	   Library Functions Manual    explain_fread_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_fread_or_die - binary stream input and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/fread.h>
       void  explain_fread_or_die(void	*ptr,  size_t size, size_t nmemb, FILE
       *fp);

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_fread_or_die	function is used to call the  fread(3)	system
       call.   On  failure  an explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from explain_fread(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:
	      size_t how_many =	explain_fread_or_die(ptr, size,	nmemb, fp);

       ptr     The ptr,	exactly	as to be passed	to the fread(3)	system call.

       size    The size, exactly as to be passed to the	fread(3) system	call.

       nmemb   The nmemb, exactly as to	be passed to the fread(3) system call.

       fp      The fp, exactly as to be	passed to the fread(3) system call.

       Returns:
	       This function only returns on success, the number read or 0  on
	       end-of-input.  On failure, prints an explanation	and exits.
