explain_pipe2_or_die(3)	   Library Functions Manual    explain_pipe2_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_pipe2_or_die - create pipe and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/pipe2.h>
       void explain_pipe2_or_die(int *fildes, int flags);
       int explain_pipe2_on_error(int *fildes, int flags);

DESCRIPTION
       The  explain_pipe2_or_die  function is used to call the pipe2(2)	system
       call. On	failure	an explanation will be	printed	 to  stderr,  obtained
       from  the explain_pipe2(3) function, and	then the process terminates by
       calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The explain_pipe2_on_error function is used to call the pipe2(2)	system
       call.  On  failure  an  explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from the	explain_pipe2(3) function, but still returns to	the caller.

       fildes  The fildes, exactly as to be  passed  to	 the  pipe2(2)	system
	       call.

       flags   The flags, exactly as to	be passed to the pipe2(2) system call.

RETURN VALUE
       The explain_pipe2_or_die	function only returns on success, see pipe2(2)
       for more	information. On	failure, prints	an explanation and  exits,  it
       does not	return.

       The  explain_pipe2_on_error function always returns the value return by
       the wrapped pipe2(2) system call.

EXAMPLE
       The explain_pipe2_or_die	function is intended to	be used	in  a  fashion
       similar to the following	example:
	      explain_pipe2_or_die(fildes, flags);
