NAME

       explain_readdir_or_die - read directory entry and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/readdir.h>
       struct dirent *explain_readdir_or_die(DIR *dir);

DESCRIPTION

       The  explain_readdir_or_die  function  is  used  to  call  the readdir(2) system call.  On
       failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained  from  explain_readdir(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_readdir_or_die(dir);

       dir     The dir, exactly as to be passed to the readdir(2) system call.

       Returns:
               a  pointer  to a dirent structure, or NULL if end‐of‐file is reached.  On failure,
               prints an explanation and exits.
