explain_utimes_or_die(3)   Library Functions Manual   explain_utimes_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_utimes_or_die  -	change file access and modify times and	report
       errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/utimes.h>
       void explain_utimes_or_die(const	char *pathname,	const  struct  timeval
       *data);
       int  explain_utimes_on_error(const char *pathname, const	struct timeval
       *data);

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

       The explain_utimes_on_error function is used to call the	utimes(2) sys-
       tem call. On failure an explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from the	explain_utimes(3) function, but	still returns to the caller.

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

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

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

       The explain_utimes_on_error function always returns the value return by
       the wrapped utimes(2) system call.

EXAMPLE
       The  explain_utimes_or_die function is intended to be used in a fashion
       similar to the following	example:
	      explain_utimes_or_die(pathname, data);

SEE ALSO
       utimes(2)
	       change file last	access and modification	times

       explain_utimes(3)
	       explain utimes(2) errors
