explain_lutimes_or_die(3)  Library Functions Manual  explain_lutimes_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_lutimes_or_die -	modify file timestamps and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/lutimes.h>
       void  explain_lutimes_or_die(const char *pathname, const	struct timeval
       *data);
       int explain_lutimes_on_error(const char *pathname, const	struct timeval
       *data);

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_lutimes_or_die function is used to call the lutimes(3) sys-
       tem call. On failure an explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from  the  explain_lutimes(3) function, and then	the process terminates
       by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

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

       pathname
	       The  pathname, exactly as to be passed to the lutimes(3)	system
	       call.

       data    The data, exactly as to be  passed  to  the  lutimes(3)	system
	       call.

RETURN VALUE
       The  explain_lutimes_or_die  function  only returns on success, see lu-
       times(3)	for more information. On failure, prints  an  explanation  and
       exits, it does not return.

       The  explain_lutimes_on_error  function always returns the value	return
       by the wrapped lutimes(3) system	call.

EXAMPLE
       The explain_lutimes_or_die function is intended to be used in a fashion
       similar to the following	example:
	      explain_lutimes_or_die(pathname, data);
