NAME

       explain_accept_or_die - accept a connection on a socket and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/accept.h>
       int    explain_accept_or_die(int    fildes,    struct   sockaddr   *sock_addr,   socklen_t
       *sock_addr_size);

DESCRIPTION

       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.
