explain_rename_or_die(3)   Library Functions Manual   explain_rename_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_rename_or_die - change the name of a file and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/rename.h>
       void explain_rename_or_die(const	char *oldpath, const char *newpath);

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_rename_or_die function is used to call the rename(2)	system
       call.  On failure an explanation	will be	printed	 to  stderr,  obtained
       from  explain_rename(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:
	      explain_rename_or_die(oldpath, newpath);

       oldpath The  oldpath,  exactly  as to be	passed to the rename(2)	system
	       call.

       newpath The newpath, exactly as to be passed to	the  rename(2)	system
	       call.

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