explain_tmpfile_or_die(3)  Library Functions Manual  explain_tmpfile_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_tmpfile_or_die -	create a temporary file	and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/tmpfile.h>
       FILE *explain_tmpfile_or_die(void);
       FILE *explain_tmpfile_on_error(void);

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

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

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

       The  explain_tmpfile_on_error  function always returns the value	return
       by the wrapped tmpfile(3) system	call.

EXAMPLE
       The explain_tmpfile_or_die function is intended to be used in a fashion
       similar to the following	example:
	      FILE *result = explain_tmpfile_or_die();
