explain_tmpnam_or_die(3)   Library Functions Manual   explain_tmpnam_or_die(3)

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

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/tmpnam.h>
       char *explain_tmpnam_or_die(char	*pathname);
       char *explain_tmpnam_on_error(char *pathname);

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

       The explain_tmpnam_on_error function is used to call the	tmpnam(3) sys-
       tem call. On failure an explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from the	explain_tmpnam(3) function, but	still returns to the caller.

       pathname
	       The  pathname,  exactly as to be	passed to the tmpnam(3)	system
	       call.

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

       The explain_tmpnam_on_error function always returns the value return by
       the wrapped tmpnam(3) system call.

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