explain_gettimeofday_or_dieLibrary Functions Manexplain_gettimeofday_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_gettimeofday_or_die - get time and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/gettimeofday.h>
       void  explain_gettimeofday_or_die(struct	 timeval  *tv, struct timezone
       *tz);

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_gettimeofday_or_die function	is used	to call	the gettimeof-
       day(2)  system  call.   On  failure  an	explanation will be printed to
       stderr, obtained	from explain_gettimeofday(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_gettimeofday_or_die(tv, tz);

       tv      The tv, exactly as to be	passed to the  gettimeofday(2)	system
	       call.

       tz      The  tz,	 exactly as to be passed to the	gettimeofday(2)	system
	       call.

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