NAME

       explain_gettimeofday_or_die - get time and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/gettimeofday.h>
       void explain_gettimeofday_or_die(struct timeval *tv, struct timezone *tz);

DESCRIPTION

       The  explain_gettimeofday_or_die function is used to call the gettimeofday(2) system call.
       On   failure   an   explanation   will   be   printed    to    stderr,    obtained    from
       explain_gettimeofday(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_gettimeofday_or_die(tv, tz);

       tv      The tv, exactly as to be passed to the gettimeofday(2) system call.

       tz      The tz, exactly as to be passed to the gettimeofday(2) system call.

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