NAME

       explain_futimesat_or_die  -  change  timestamps  of a file    relative to a directory  and
       report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/futimesat.h>
       void explain_futimesat_or_die(int fildes,  const  char  *pathname,  const  struct  timeval
       *data);
       int  explain_futimesat_on_error(int  fildes,  const  char  *pathname, const struct timeval
       *data);

DESCRIPTION

       The explain_futimesat_or_die function is used to call the  futimesat(2)  system  call.  On
       failure  an  explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_futimesat(3)
       function, and then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The explain_futimesat_on_error function is used to call the futimesat(2) system  call.  On
       failure  an  explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_futimesat(3)
       function, but still returns to the caller.

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

       pathname
               The pathname, exactly as to be passed to the futimesat(2) system call.

       data    The data, exactly as to be passed to the futimesat(2) system call.

RETURN VALUE

       The explain_futimesat_or_die function only returns on success, see futimesat(2)  for  more
       information. On failure, prints an explanation and exits, it does not return.

       The  explain_futimesat_on_error  function  always  returns the value return by the wrapped
       futimesat(2) system call.

EXAMPLE

       The explain_futimesat_or_die function is intended to be used in a fashion similar  to  the
       following example:
              explain_futimesat_or_die(fildes, pathname, data);

       explain_futimesat(3)
