NAME

       explain_setenv_or_die - change or add an environment variable and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/setenv.h>
       void explain_setenv_or_die(const char *name, const char *value, int overwrite);
       int explain_setenv_on_error(const char *name, const char *value, int overwrite);

DESCRIPTION

       The  explain_setenv_or_die  function is used to call the setenv(3) system call. On failure
       an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from  the  explain_setenv(3)  function,
       and then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The explain_setenv_on_error function is used to call the setenv(3) system call. On failure
       an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from  the  explain_setenv(3)  function,
       but still returns to the caller.

       name    The name, exactly as to be passed to the setenv(3) system call.

       value   The value, exactly as to be passed to the setenv(3) system call.

       overwrite
               The overwrite, exactly as to be passed to the setenv(3) system call.

RETURN VALUE

       The  explain_setenv_or_die  function  only  returns  on  success,  see  setenv(3) for more
       information. On failure, prints an explanation and exits, it does not return.

       The explain_setenv_on_error function always  returns  the  value  return  by  the  wrapped
       setenv(3) system call.

EXAMPLE

       The  explain_setenv_or_die  function  is  intended  to be used in a fashion similar to the
       following example:
              explain_setenv_or_die(name, value, overwrite);
