explain_utime_or_die(3)	   Library Functions Manual    explain_utime_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_utime_or_die - change file times	and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/utime.h>
       void  explain_utime_or_die(const	 char  *pathname, const	struct utimbuf
       *times);

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_utime_or_die	function is used to call the  utime(2)	system
       call.   On  failure  an explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from explain_utime(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_utime_or_die(pathname, times);

       pathname
	       The pathname, exactly as	to be passed to	 the  utime(2)	system
	       call.

       times   The times, exactly as to	be passed to the utime(2) system call.

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