NAME explain_shmctl_or_die - shared memory control and report errors
SYNOPSIS #include <libexplain/shmctl.h> void explain_shmctl_or_die(int shmid, int command, struct shmid_ds *data); int explain_shmctl_on_error(int shmid, int command, struct shmid_ds *data);
DESCRIPTION The explain_shmctl_or_die function is used to call the shmctl(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_shmctl(3) function, and then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE). The explain_shmctl_on_error function is used to call the shmctl(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_shmctl(3) function, but still returns to the caller. shmid The shmid, exactly as to be passed to the shmctl(2) system call. command The command, exactly as to be passed to the shmctl(2) system call. data The data, exactly as to be passed to the shmctl(2) system call.
RETURN VALUE The explain_shmctl_or_die function only returns on success, see shmctl(2) for more infor‐ mation. On failure, prints an explanation and exits, it does not return. The explain_shmctl_on_error function always returns the value return by the wrapped shm‐ ctl(2) system call.
EXAMPLE The explain_shmctl_or_die function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the fol‐ lowing example: explain_shmctl_or_die(shmid, command, data);
