explain_fwrite_or_die(3)   Library Functions Manual   explain_fwrite_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_fwrite_or_die - binary stream output and	report errors

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

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_fwrite_or_die function is used to call the fwrite(3)	system
       call.   On  failure  an explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from explain_fwrite(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 result = explain_fwrite_or_die(ptr, size, nmemb, fp);

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

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

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

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

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