explain_listen_or_die(3)   Library Functions Manual   explain_listen_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_listen_or_die  -	 listen	for connections	on a socket and	report
       errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/listen.h>
       void explain_listen_or_die(int fildes, int backlog);

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_listen_or_die function is used to call the listen(2)	system
       call.   On  failure  an explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from explain_listen(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_listen_or_die(fildes, backlog);

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

       backlog The  backlog,  exactly  as to be	passed to the listen(2)	system
	       call.

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