NAME

explain_fork_or_die - create a child process and report errors

SYNOPSIS

#include <libexplain/fork.h> void explain_fork_or_die(void);

On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_fork(3), and then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE). This function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following example: explain_fork_or_die(); Returns: This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
