NAME
       explain_utimensat_or_die	- change file timestamps and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/utimensat.h>
       void  explain_utimensat_or_die(int  fildes, const char *pathname, const
       struct timespec *data, int flags);
       int explain_utimensat_on_error(int fildes, const	char *pathname,	 const
       struct timespec *data, int flags);

DESCRIPTION
       The  explain_utimensat_or_die function is used to call the utimensat(2)
       system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to  stderr,  ob-
       tained  from  the  explain_utimensat(3)	function, and then the process
       terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The explain_utimensat_on_error function is used	to  call  the  utimen-
       sat(2)  system  call.  On  failure  an  explanation  will be printed to
       stderr, obtained	from the explain_utimensat(3) function,	but still  re-
       turns to	the caller.

       fildes  The  fildes, exactly as to be passed to the utimensat(2)	system
	       call.

       pathname
	       The pathname, exactly as	to be passed to	the utimensat(2)  sys-
	       tem call.

       data    The  data,  exactly  as to be passed to the utimensat(2)	system
	       call.

       flags   The flags, exactly as to	be passed to the  utimensat(2)	system
	       call.

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

       The explain_utimensat_on_error function always returns the value	return
       by the wrapped utimensat(2) system call.

EXAMPLE
       The explain_utimensat_or_die function is	intended to be used in a fash-
       ion similar to the following example:
	      explain_utimensat_or_die(fildes, pathname, data, flags);

SEE ALSO
       utimensat(2)
	       change file timestamps with nanosecond precision

       explain_utimensat(3)
	       explain utimensat(2) errors
