explain_write_or_die(3)	   Library Functions Manual    explain_write_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_write_or_die - write to a file descriptor and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/write.h>
       void   explain_write_or_die(int	 fildes,   const   void	  *data,  long
       data_size);

DESCRIPTION
       The explain_write_or_die	function is used to call the  write(2)	system
       call.   On  failure  an explanation will	be printed to stderr, obtained
       from explain_write(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:
	      ssize_t result = explain_write_or_die(fildes, data, data_size);

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

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

       data_size
	       The  data_size,	exactly	as to be passed	to the write(2)	system
	       call.

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