NAME

       explain_getaddrinfo_or_die - network address translation and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/getaddrinfo.h>
       void  explain_getaddrinfo_or_die(const  char  *node,  const  char  *service,  const struct
       addrinfo *hints, struct addrinfo **res);

DESCRIPTION

       The explain_getaddrinfo_or_die function is used to call the  getaddrinfo(3)  system  call.
       On    failure,    an    explanation   will   be   printed   to   stderr,   obtained   from
       explain_getaddrinfo(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_getaddrinfo_or_die(node, service, hints, res);

       node    The node, exactly as to be passed to the getaddrinfo(3) system call.

       service The service, exactly as to be passed to the getaddrinfo(3) system call.

       hints   The hints, exactly as to be passed to the getaddrinfo(3) system call.

       res     The res, exactly as to be passed to the getaddrinfo(3) system call.

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