explain_stat_or_die(3)	   Library Functions Manual	explain_stat_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_stat_or_die - get file status and report	errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/stat.h>
       void explain_stat_or_die(const char *pathname, struct stat *buf);

DESCRIPTION
       The  explain_stat_or_die	 function  is  used to call the	stat(2)	system
       call.  On failure an explanation	will be	printed	 to  stderr,  obtained
       from  explain_stat(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_stat_or_die(pathname, buf);

       pathname
	       The  pathname,  exactly	as  to be passed to the	stat(2)	system
	       call.

       buf     The buf,	exactly	as to be passed	to the stat(2) system call.

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