NAME

       explain_creat_or_die - create and open a file creat and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/creat.h>
       void explain_creat_or_die(const char *pathname, int mode);

DESCRIPTION

       The explain_creat_or_die function is used to call the creat(2) system call.  On failure an
       explanation will be printed to  stderr,  obtained  from  explain_creat(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_creat_or_die(pathname, mode);

       pathname
               The pathname, exactly as to be passed to the creat(2) system call.

       mode    The mode, exactly as to be passed to the creat(2) system call.

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