explain_pathconf_or_die(3) Library Functions Manual explain_pathconf_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_pathconf_or_die - get configuration values and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/pathconf.h>
       long explain_pathconf_or_die(const char *pathname, int name);

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

       This function is	intended to be used in a fashion similar to  the  fol-
       lowing example:
	      long value = explain_pathconf_or_die(pathname, name);
       Note  that a -1 return value is still possible, meaning the system does
       not have	a limit	for the	requested resource.

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

       name    The  name,  exactly  as	to be passed to	the pathconf(3)	system
	       call.

       Returns:
	       This function only returns on success.  On failure,  prints  an
	       explanation and exits.
