explain_lchownat_or_die(3) Library Functions Manual explain_lchownat_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_lchownat_or_die - Execute lchownat(2) and report	errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/lchownat.h>
       void explain_lchownat_or_die(int	fildes,	const char *pathname, int uid,
       int gid);
       int explain_lchownat_on_error(int fildes,  const	 char  *pathname,  int
       uid, int	gid);

DESCRIPTION
       The  explain_lchownat_or_die  function  is used to call the lchownat(2)
       system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to  stderr,  ob-
       tained from the explain_lchownat(3) function, and then the process ter-
       minates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The explain_lchownat_on_error function is used to call the  lchownat(2)
       system  call.  On failure an explanation	will be	printed	to stderr, ob-
       tained from the explain_lchownat(3) function, but still returns to  the
       caller.

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

       pathname
	       The pathname, exactly as	to be passed to	the lchownat(2)	system
	       call.

       uid     The  uid,  exactly  as  to  be passed to	the lchownat(2)	system
	       call.

       gid     The gid,	exactly	as to be  passed  to  the  lchownat(2)	system
	       call.

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

       The  explain_lchownat_on_error function always returns the value	return
       by the wrapped lchownat(2) system call.

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