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

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/mkstemp.h>
       int explain_mkstemp_or_die(char *templat);
       int explain_mkstemp_on_error(char *templat);

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

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

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

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

       The  explain_mkstemp_on_error  function always returns the value	return
       by the wrapped mkstemp(3) system	call.

EXAMPLE
       The explain_mkstemp_or_die function is intended to be used in a fashion
       similar to the following	example:
	      int result = explain_mkstemp_or_die(templat);
