       FILE *explain_popen_or_die(const	char *command, const char *flags);

DESCRIPTION

       from  explain_popen(3),	and  then  the	process	 terminates by calling
       exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       lowing example:
	      FILE *fp = explain_popen_or_die(command, flags);

	       call.

	       information.  On	failure, prints	an explanation and exits.
