       explain_fopen_or_die - open file and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/fopen.h>

       FILE *explain_fopen_or_die(const char *pathname, const char *flags);

DESCRIPTION

       The  explain_fopen_or_die() function opens the file whose name is the string pointed to by
       pathname and associates a stream with it.  See fopen(3) for more information.

       This is a quick and simple way for programs to constitently report file open errors  in  a
       consistent and detailed fahion.

RETURN VALUE

       Upon successful completion explain_fopen_or_die returns a FILE pointer.

       If  an  error  occurs,  explain_fopen  will  be called to explain the error, which will be
       printed onto stderr, and then the process will terminate by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).
