NAME
       explain_mkostemp_or_die - create	a unique temporary file	and report er-
       rors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/mkostemp.h>
       int explain_mkostemp_or_die(char	*templat, int flags);
       int explain_mkostemp_on_error(char *templat, int	flags);

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

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

       templat The template, exactly as	to be passed to	the mkostemp(3)	system
	       call.

       flags   The  flags,  exactly  as	to be passed to	the mkostemp(3)	system
	       call.

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

       The explain_mkostemp_on_error function always returns the value	return
       by the wrapped mkostemp(3) system call.

EXAMPLE
       The  explain_mkostemp_or_die function is	intended to be used in a fash-
       ion similar to the following example:
	      int result = explain_mkostemp_or_die(templat, flags);
