NAME

       explain_execvp_or_die - execute a file and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/execvp.h>
       void explain_execvp_or_die(const char *pathname, char *const *argv);

DESCRIPTION

       The  explain_execvp_or_die function is used to call the execvp(3) system call.  On failure
       an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_execvp(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_execvp_or_die(pathname, argv);

       pathname
               The pathname, exactly as to be passed to the execvp(3) system call.

       argv    The argv, exactly as to be passed to the execvp(3) system call.

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