NAME

       explain_fputs_or_die - write a string to a stream and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/fputs.h>
       void explain_fputs_or_die(const char *s, FILE *fp);
       int explain_fputs_on_error(const char *s, FILE *fp);

DESCRIPTION

       The  explain_fputs_or_die function is used to call the fputs(3) system call. On failure an
       explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the  explain_fputs(3)  function,  and
       then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The  explain_fputs_on_error  function is used to call the fputs(3) system call. On failure
       an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_fputs(3) function, but
       still returns to the caller.

       s       The s, exactly as to be passed to the fputs(3) system call.

       fp      The fp, exactly as to be passed to the fputs(3) system call.

RETURN VALUE

       The  explain_fputs_or_die  function  only  returns  on  success,  see  fputs(3)  for  more
       information. On failure, prints an explanation and exits, it does not return.

       The explain_fputs_on_error function  always  returns  the  value  return  by  the  wrapped
       fputs(3) system call.

EXAMPLE

       The  explain_fputs_or_die  function  is  intended  to  be used in a fashion similar to the
       following example:
              explain_fputs_or_die(s, fp);
