explain_time_or_die(3)	   Library Functions Manual	explain_time_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_time_or_die - get time in seconds and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/time.h>
       time_t explain_time_or_die(time_t *t);
       time_t explain_time_on_error(time_t *t);

DESCRIPTION
       The  explain_time_or_die	 function  is  used to call the	time(2)	system
       call. On	failure	an explanation will be	printed	 to  stderr,  obtained
       from  the  explain_time(3) function, and	then the process terminates by
       calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The explain_time_on_error function is used to call the  time(2)	system
       call.  On  failure  an  explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from the	explain_time(3)	function, but still returns to the caller.

       t       The t, exactly as to be passed to the time(2) system call.

RETURN VALUE
       The explain_time_or_die function	only returns on	success,  see  time(2)
       for  more  information. On failure, prints an explanation and exits, it
       does not	return.

       The explain_time_on_error function always returns the value  return  by
       the wrapped time(2) system call.

EXAMPLE
       The  explain_time_or_die	 function  is intended to be used in a fashion
       similar to the following	example:
	      time_t result = explain_time_or_die(t);
