explain_futimesat_or_die(3)Library Functions Manualexplain_futimesat_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_futimesat_or_die	- change timestamps of a file	 relative to a
       directory  and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/futimesat.h>
       void explain_futimesat_or_die(int fildes, const char  *pathname,	 const
       struct timeval *data);
       int  explain_futimesat_on_error(int fildes, const char *pathname, const
       struct timeval *data);

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_futimesat_or_die function is	used to	call the  futimesat(2)
       system  call.  On failure an explanation	will be	printed	to stderr, ob-
       tained from the explain_futimesat(3) function,  and  then  the  process
       terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The  explain_futimesat_on_error	function  is  used to call the futime-
       sat(2) system call. On  failure	an  explanation	 will  be  printed  to
       stderr,	obtained from the explain_futimesat(3) function, but still re-
       turns to	the caller.

       fildes  The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the futimesat(2)	system
	       call.

       pathname
	       The  pathname, exactly as to be passed to the futimesat(2) sys-
	       tem call.

       data    The data, exactly as to be passed to  the  futimesat(2)	system
	       call.

RETURN VALUE
       The  explain_futimesat_or_die function only returns on success, see fu-
       timesat(2) for more information.	On failure, prints an explanation  and
       exits, it does not return.

       The explain_futimesat_on_error function always returns the value	return
       by the wrapped futimesat(2) system call.

EXAMPLE
       The explain_futimesat_or_die function is	intended to be used in a fash-
       ion similar to the following example:
	      explain_futimesat_or_die(fildes, pathname, data);

SEE ALSO
       futimesat(2)
	       change timestamps of a file relative to a directory

       explain_futimesat(3)
	       explain futimesat(2) errors

       exit(2) terminate the calling process
