explain_tempnam_or_die(3)  Library Functions Manual  explain_tempnam_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_tempnam_or_die  - create	a name for a temporary file and	report
       errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/tempnam.h>
       char *explain_tempnam_or_die(const char *dir, const char	*prefix);
       char *explain_tempnam_on_error(const char *dir, const char *prefix);

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_tempnam_or_die function is used to call the tempnam(3) sys-
       tem call. On failure an explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from the	explain_tempnam(3) function, and then the  process  terminates
       by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The  explain_tempnam_on_error  function	is used	to call	the tempnam(3)
       system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to  stderr,  ob-
       tained  from  the explain_tempnam(3) function, but still	returns	to the
       caller.

       dir     The dir,	exactly	as to be passed	to the tempnam(3) system call.

       prefix  The prefix, exactly as to be passed to  the  tempnam(3)	system
	       call.

RETURN VALUE
       The  explain_tempnam_or_die function only returns on success, see temp-
       nam(3) for more information. On failure,	prints an explanation and  ex-
       its, it does not	return.

       The  explain_tempnam_on_error  function always returns the value	return
       by the wrapped tempnam(3) system	call.

EXAMPLE
       The explain_tempnam_or_die function is intended to be used in a fashion
       similar to the following	example:
	      char *result = explain_tempnam_or_die(dir, prefix);
