NAME explain_lstat_or_die - get file status and report errors SYNOPSIS #include <libexplain/lstat.h> void explain_lstat_or_die(const char *pathname, struct stat *buf); DESCRIPTION The explain_lstat_or_die function is used to call the lstat(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_lstat(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_lstat_or_die(pathname , buf); pathname The pathname, exactly as to be passed to the lstat(2) system call. buf The buf, exactly as to be passed to the lstat(2) system call. Returns: This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
