NAME

       explain_execve_or_die - execute program and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/execve.h>
       void  explain_execve_or_die(const  char  *pathname,  const  char  *const *argv, const char
       *const *envp);

DESCRIPTION

       The explain_execve_or_die function is used to call the execve(2) system call.  On  failure
       an  explanation  will  be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_execve(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_execve_or_die(pathname, argv, envp);

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

       argv    The argv, exactly as to be passed to the execve(2) system call.

       envp    The envp, exactly as to be passed to the execve(2) system call.

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