explain_pipe_or_die - create pipe and report errors
#include <libexplain/pipe.h> void explain_pipe_or_die(int *pipefd);
The explain_pipe_or_die function is used to call the pipe(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_pipe(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_pipe_or_die(pipefd); pipefd The pipefd, exactly as to be passed to the pipe(2) system call. Returns: This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
