NAME
       explain_getaddrinfo_or_die - network address translation	and report er-
       rors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/getaddrinfo.h>
       void explain_getaddrinfo_or_die(const char *node, const char  *service,
       const struct addrinfo *hints, struct addrinfo **res);

DESCRIPTION
       The  explain_getaddrinfo_or_die	function  is  used  to call the	getad-
       drinfo(3) system	call.  On failure, an explanation will be  printed  to
       stderr, obtained	from explain_getaddrinfo(3), and then the process ter-
       minates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       This function is	intended to be used in a fashion similar to  the  fol-
       lowing example:
	      explain_getaddrinfo_or_die(node, service,	hints, res);

       node    The  node, exactly as to	be passed to the getaddrinfo(3)	system
	       call.

       service The service, exactly as to be passed to the getaddrinfo(3) sys-
	       tem call.

       hints   The hints, exactly as to	be passed to the getaddrinfo(3)	system
	       call.

       res     The res,	exactly	as to be passed	to the	getaddrinfo(3)	system
	       call.

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