NAME

       explain_select_or_die - blah blah and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/select.h>
       void explain_select_or_die(int nfds, fd_set *readfds, fd_set *writefds, fd_set *exceptfds,
       struct timeval *timeout);

DESCRIPTION

       The explain_select_or_die function is used to call the select(2) system call.  On  failure
       an  explanation  will  be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_select(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_select_or_die(nfds, readfds, writefds, exceptfds, timeout);

       nfds    The nfds, exactly as to be passed to the select(2) system call.

       readfds The readfds, exactly as to be passed to the select(2) system call.

       writefds
               The writefds, exactly as to be passed to the select(2) system call.

       exceptfds
               The exceptfds, exactly as to be passed to the select(2) system call.

       timeout The timeout, exactly as to be passed to the select(2) system call.

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