explain_realloc_or_die(3)  Library Functions Manual  explain_realloc_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_realloc_or_die  -  Allocate  and	free dynamic memory and	report
       errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/realloc.h>
       void explain_realloc_or_die(void	*ptr, size_t size);

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_realloc_or_die function is used to call the realloc(3) sys-
       tem  call.   On	failure	 an explanation	will be	printed	to stderr, ob-
       tained from explain_realloc(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:
	      void *new_ptr = explain_realloc_or_die(ptr, size);

       ptr     The ptr,	exactly	as to be passed	to the realloc(3) system call.

       size    The size, exactly as to be  passed  to  the  realloc(3)	system
	       call.

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