explain_mkdtemp_or_die(3)  Library Functions Manual  explain_mkdtemp_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_mkdtemp_or_die -	create a unique	temporary directory and	report
       errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/mkdtemp.h>
       char *explain_mkdtemp_or_die(char *pathname);
       char *explain_mkdtemp_on_error(char *pathname);

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

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

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

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

       The  explain_mkdtemp_on_error  function always returns the value	return
       by the wrapped mkdtemp(3) system	call.

EXAMPLE
       The explain_mkdtemp_or_die function is intended to be used in a fashion
       similar to the following	example:
	      char *result = explain_mkdtemp_or_die(pathname);
