NAME

       explain_fork_or_die - create a child process and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/fork.h>
       void explain_fork_or_die(void);

DESCRIPTION

       The  explain_fork_or_die  function is used to call the fork(2) system call.  On failure an
       explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_fork(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_fork_or_die();

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