SYNOPSIS #include <libexplain/realloc.h> void explain_realloc_or_die(void *ptr, size_t size);
DESCRIPTION The explain_realloc_or_die function is used to call the realloc(3) system call. On fail‐ ure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_realloc(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: void *new_ptr = explain_realloc_or_die(ptr, size); ptr The ptr, exactly as to be passed to the realloc(3) system call. size The size, exactly as to be passed to the realloc(3) system call. Returns: This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
