explain_putw_or_die(3)	   Library Functions Manual	explain_putw_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_putw_or_die - output a word (int) and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/putw.h>
       void explain_putw_or_die(int value, FILE	*fp);
       int explain_putw_on_error(int value, FILE *fp);

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

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

       value   The value, exactly as to	be passed to the putw(3) system	call.

       fp      The fp, exactly as to be	passed to the putw(3) system call.

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

       The explain_putw_on_error function always returns the value  return  by
       the wrapped putw(3) system call.

EXAMPLE
       The  explain_putw_or_die	 function  is intended to be used in a fashion
       similar to the following	example:
	      explain_putw_or_die(value, fp);
