explain_accept_or_die - accept a connection on a socket and report errors
#include <libexplain/accept.h> int explain_accept_or_die(int fildes, struct sockaddr *sock_addr, socklen_t *sock_addr_size);
The explain_accept_or_die function is used to call the accept(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_accept(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: int fd = explain_accept_or_die(fildes, sock_addr, sock_addr_size); fildes The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the accept(2) system call. sock_addr The sock_addr, exactly as to be passed to the accept(2) system call. sock_addr_size The sock_addr_size, exactly as to be passed to the accept(2) system call. Returns: This function only returns on success, see accept(2) for more information. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
accept(2) accept a connection on a socket explain_accept(3) explain accept(2) errors exit(2) terminate the calling process
