SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/close.h>

DESCRIPTION

       The explain_close_or_die function is used to call the close(2) system call.  On failure an
       explanation will be printed to  stderr,  obtained  from  explain_close(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:
              explain_close_or_die(fildes);

       fildes  The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the close(2) system call.

       Returns:
               This  function  only  returns  on  success.  On failure, prints an explanation and
               exits.
