NAME

       explain_fdopen_or_die - stream open functions and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/fdopen.h>
       void explain_fdopen_or_die(int fd, const char *mode);

DESCRIPTION

       The  explain_fdopen_or_die function is used to call the fdopen(3) system call.  On failure
       an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_fdopen(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:
              FILE *fp = explain_fdopen_or_die(fd, mode);

       fd      The fd, exactly as to be passed to the fdopen(3) system call.

       mode    The mode, exactly as to be passed to the fdopen(3) system call.

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