       void explain_fstat_or_die(int fildes, struct stat *buf);

DESCRIPTION
       The  explain_fstat_or_die  function is used to call the fstat(2)	system
       call.  On failure an explanation	will be	printed	 to  stderr,  obtained
       from  explain_fstat(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_fstat_or_die(fildes, buf);

	       call.

       buf     The buf,	exactly	as to be passed	to the fstat(2)	system call.

       Returns:

	       explanation and exits.
