NAME
       explain_puts_or_die - write a string and	a newline to stdout and	report
       errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/puts.h>
       void explain_puts_or_die(const char *s);
       int explain_puts_on_error(const char *s);

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

       The  explain_puts_on_error  function is used to call the	puts(3)	system
       call. On	failure	an explanation will be	printed	 to  stderr,  obtained
       from the	explain_puts(3)	function, but still returns to the caller.

       s       The s, exactly as to be passed to the puts(3) system call.

RETURN VALUE
       The  explain_puts_or_die	 function only returns on success, see puts(3)
       for more	information. On	failure, prints	an explanation and  exits,  it
       does not	return.

       The  explain_puts_on_error  function always returns the value return by
       the wrapped puts(3) system call.

EXAMPLE
       The explain_puts_or_die function	is intended to be used	in  a  fashion
       similar to the following	example:
	      explain_puts_or_die(s);
