#include <libexplain/listen.h> void explain_listen_or_die(int fildes, int backlog);

This function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following example: explain_listen_or_die(fildes, backlog); fildes The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the listen(2) system call. backlog The backlog, exactly as to be passed to the listen(2) system call.
