explain_nanosleep_or_die(3)Library Functions Manualexplain_nanosleep_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_nanosleep_or_die	- high-resolution sleep	and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/nanosleep.h>
       void  explain_nanosleep_or_die(const struct timespec *req, struct time-
       spec *rem);
       int explain_nanosleep_on_error(const struct timespec *req, struct time-
       spec *rem);

DESCRIPTION
       The  explain_nanosleep_or_die function is used to call the nanosleep(2)
       system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to  stderr,  ob-
       tained  from  the  explain_nanosleep(3)	function, and then the process
       terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The  explain_nanosleep_on_error	function   is	used   to   call   the
       nanosleep(2)  system call. On failure an	explanation will be printed to
       stderr, obtained	from the explain_nanosleep(3) function,	but still  re-
       turns to	the caller.

       req     The  req,  exactly  as  to be passed to the nanosleep(2)	system
	       call.

       rem     The rem,	exactly	as to be passed	 to  the  nanosleep(2)	system
	       call.

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

       The explain_nanosleep_on_error function always returns the value	return
       by the wrapped nanosleep(2) system call.

EXAMPLE
       The explain_nanosleep_or_die function is	intended to be used in a fash-
       ion similar to the following example:
	      explain_nanosleep_or_die(req, rem);

SEE ALSO

       explain_nanosleep(3)
	       explain nanosleep(2) errors

       exit(2) terminate the calling process
