NAME

       explain_rename_or_die - change the name of a file and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/rename.h>
       void explain_rename_or_die(const char *oldpath, const char *newpath);

DESCRIPTION

       The  explain_rename_or_die function is used to call the rename(2) system call.  On failure
       an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_rename(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_rename_or_die(oldpath, newpath);

       oldpath The oldpath, exactly as to be passed to the rename(2) system call.

       newpath The newpath, exactly as to be passed to the rename(2) system call.

       Returns:
               This  function  only  returns  on  success.  On failure, prints an explanation and
               exits.
