explain_link_or_die(3)	   Library Functions Manual	explain_link_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_link_or_die - make a new	name for a file	and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/link.h>
       void explain_link_or_die(const char *oldpath, const char	*newpath);

DESCRIPTION
       The  explain_link_or_die	 function  is  used to call the	link(2)	system
       call.  On failure an explanation	will be	printed	 to  stderr,  obtained
       from  explain_link(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_link_or_die(oldpath, newpath);

       oldpath The  oldpath,  exactly  as  to  be passed to the	link(2)	system
	       call.

       newpath The newpath, exactly as to be  passed  to  the  link(2)	system
	       call.

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