explain_symlink_or_die(3)  Library Functions Manual  explain_symlink_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_symlink_or_die -	make a new name	for a file and report errors

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

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_symlink_or_die function is used to call the symlink(2) sys-
       tem call.  On  failure  an  explanation	will  be  printed  to  stderr,
       obtained	 from  explain_symlink(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_symlink_or_die(oldpath, newpath);

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

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

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