explain_nice_or_die - change process priority and report errors
#include <libexplain/nice.h> int explain_nice_or_die(int inc); int explain_nice_on_error(int inc);
The explain_nice_or_die function is used to call the nice(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_nice(3) function, and then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE). The explain_nice_on_error function is used to call the nice(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from the explain_nice(3) function, but still returns to the caller. inc The inc, exactly as to be passed to the nice(2) system call.
The explain_nice_or_die function only returns on success, see nice(2) for more information. On failure, prints an explanation and exits, it does not return. The explain_nice_on_error function always returns the value return by the wrapped nice(2) system call.
The explain_nice_or_die function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following example: int result = explain_nice_or_die(inc);
nice(2) change process priority explain_nice(3) explain nice(2) errors exit(2) terminate the calling process
