explain_mkdir_or_die - create a directory and report errors
#include <libexplain/mkdir.h> void explain_mkdir_or_die(const char *pathname);
The explain_mkdir_or_die function is used to call the mkdir(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_mkdir(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_mkdir_or_die(pathname); pathname The pathname, exactly as to be passed to the mkdir(2) system call. Returns: This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
mkdir(2) create a directory explain_mkdir(3) explain mkdir(2) errors exit(2) terminate the calling process
