explain_gettimeofday_or_die - get time and report errors
#include <libexplain/gettimeofday.h> void explain_gettimeofday_or_die(struct timeval *tv, struct timezone *tz);
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.
