NAME

       explain_getsockname_or_die - get socket name and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/getsockname.h>
       void   explain_getsockname_or_die(int   fildes,   struct  sockaddr  *sock_addr,  socklen_t
       *sock_addr_size);

DESCRIPTION

       The explain_getsockname_or_die function is used to call the  getsockname(2)  system  call.
       On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_getsockname(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:
              struct sockaddr sock_addr;
              socklen_t sock_addr_size = sizeof(sock_addr);
              explain_getsockname_or_die(fildes, &sock_addr, &sock_addr_size);

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

       sock_addr
               The sock_addr, exactly as to be passed to the getsockname(2) system call.

       sock_addr_size
               The sock_addr_size, exactly as to be passed to the getsockname(2) system call.

       Returns:
               This function only returns on success, see getsockaddr(1)  for  more  information.
               On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
