NAME

explain_utimens_or_die - change file timestamps and report errors

SYNOPSIS

#include <libexplain/utimens.h> void explain_utimens_or_die(const char *pathname, const struct timespec *data); int explain_utimens_on_error(const char *pathname, const struct timespec *data);

DESCRIPTION

The explain_utimens_or_die function is used to call the utimens(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_utimens(3) function, and then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE). The explain_utimens_on_error function is used to call the utimens(2) system call. On fail‐ ure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_utimens(3) func‐ tion, but still returns to the caller. pathname The pathname, exactly as to be passed to the utimens(2) system call. data The data, exactly as to be passed to the utimens(2) system call.

RETURN VALUE

The explain_utimens_or_die function only returns on success, see utimens(2) for more information. On failure, prints an explanation and exits, it does not return. The explain_utimens_on_error function always returns the value return by the wrapped uti‐ mens(2) system call.

EXAMPLE

The explain_utimens_or_die function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following example: explain_utimens_or_die(pathname, data);
