NAME

       explain_fchown_or_die - change ownership of a file and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/fchown.h>
       void explain_fchown_or_die(int fildes, int owner, int group);

DESCRIPTION

       The  explain_fchown_or_die function is used to call the fchown(2) system call.  On failure
       an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_fchown(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_fchown_or_die(fildes, owner, group);

       fildes  The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the fchown(2) system call.

       owner   The owner, exactly as to be passed to the fchown(2) system call.

       group   The group, exactly as to be passed to the fchown(2) system call.

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