explain_close_or_die - close a file descriptor and report errors
#include <libexplain/close.h> void explain_close_or_die(int fildes);
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.
