NAME

       explain_getrusage_or_die - get resource usage and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/getrusage.h>
       void explain_getrusage_or_die(int who, struct rusage *usage);
       int explain_getrusage_on_error(int who, struct rusage *usage);

DESCRIPTION

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

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

       who     The who, exactly as to be passed to the getrusage(2) system call.

       usage   The usage, exactly as to be passed to the getrusage(2) system call.

RETURN VALUE

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

       The explain_getrusage_on_error function always returns the value  return  by  the  wrapped
       getrusage(2) system call.

EXAMPLE

       The  explain_getrusage_or_die  function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the
       following example:
