explain_kill_or_die(3)	   Library Functions Manual	explain_kill_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_kill_or_die - send signal to a process and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/kill.h>
       void explain_kill_or_die(pid_t pid, int sig);
       int explain_kill_on_error(pid_t pid, int	sig);

DESCRIPTION
       The  explain_kill_or_die	 function  is  used to call the	kill(2)	system
       call. On	failure	an explanation will be	printed	 to  stderr,  obtained
       from  the  explain_kill(3) function, and	then the process terminates by
       calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The explain_kill_on_error function is used to call the  kill(2)	system
       call.  On  failure  an  explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from the	explain_kill(3)	function, but still returns to the caller.

       pid     The pid,	exactly	as to be passed	to the kill(2) system call.

       sig     The sig,	exactly	as to be passed	to the kill(2) system call.

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

       The explain_kill_on_error function always returns the value  return  by
       the wrapped kill(2) system call.

EXAMPLE
       The  explain_kill_or_die	 function  is intended to be used in a fashion
       similar to the following	example:
	      explain_kill_or_die(pid, sig);

SEE ALSO
       kill(2) send signal to a	process

       explain_kill(3)
