explain_creat_or_die - create and open a file creat and report errors
#include <libexplain/creat.h> void explain_creat_or_die(const char *pathname, int mode);
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.
creat(2) open and possibly create a file or device explain_creat(3) explain creat(2) errors exit(2) terminate the calling process
