NAME explain_execlp_or_die - execute a file and report errors
SYNOPSIS #include <libexplain/execlp.h> void explain_execlp_or_die(, ...); int explain_execlp_on_error(, ...);
DESCRIPTION The explain_execlp_or_die function is used to call the execlp(3) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_execlp(3) function, and then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE). The explain_execlp_on_error function is used to call the execlp(3) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_execlp(3) function, but still returns to the caller.
RETURN VALUE The explain_execlp_or_die function only returns on success, see execlp(3) for more infor‐ mation. On failure, prints an explanation and exits, it does not return. The explain_execlp_on_error function always returns the value return by the wrapped exe‐ clp(3) system call.
EXAMPLE The explain_execlp_or_die function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the fol‐ lowing example: explain_execlp_or_die();
