explain_mount_or_die(3)	   Library Functions Manual    explain_mount_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_mount_or_die - mount file system	and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/mount.h>
       void explain_mount_or_die(const char *source, const char	*target, const
       char *file_systems_type,	unsigned long flags, const void	*data);
       int explain_mount_on_error(const	 char  *source,	 const	char  *target,
       const char *file_systems_type, unsigned long flags, const void *data);

DESCRIPTION
       The  explain_mount_or_die  function is used to call the mount(2)	system
       call. On	failure	an explanation will be	printed	 to  stderr,  obtained
       from  the explain_mount(3) function, and	then the process terminates by
       calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The explain_mount_on_error function is used to call the mount(2)	system
       call.  On  failure  an  explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from the	explain_mount(3) function, but still returns to	the caller.

       source  The source, exactly as to be  passed  to	 the  mount(2)	system
	       call.

       target  The  target,  exactly  as  to  be passed	to the mount(2)	system
	       call.

       file_systems_type
	       The file_systems_type, exactly as to be passed to the  mount(2)
	       system call.

       flags   The flags, exactly as to	be passed to the mount(2) system call.

       data    The data, exactly as to be passed to the	mount(2) system	call.

RETURN VALUE
       The explain_mount_or_die	function only returns on success, see mount(2)
       for more	information. On	failure, prints	an explanation and  exits,  it
       does not	return.

       The  explain_mount_on_error function always returns the value return by
       the wrapped mount(2) system call.

EXAMPLE
       The explain_mount_or_die	function is intended to	be used	in  a  fashion
       similar to the following	example:
	      explain_mount_or_die(source, target, file_systems_type, flags, data);

SEE ALSO
       mount(2)
	       mount file system

       explain_mount(3)
	       explain mount(2)	errors

       exit(2) terminate the calling process
