NAME

       explain_shmctl_or_die - shared memory control and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/shmctl.h>
       void explain_shmctl_or_die(int shmid, int command, struct shmid_ds *data);
       int explain_shmctl_on_error(int shmid, int command, struct shmid_ds *data);

DESCRIPTION

       The  explain_shmctl_or_die  function is used to call the shmctl(2) system call. On failure
       an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from  the  explain_shmctl(3)  function,
       and then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The explain_shmctl_on_error function is used to call the shmctl(2) system call. On failure
       an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from  the  explain_shmctl(3)  function,
       but still returns to the caller.

       shmid   The shmid, exactly as to be passed to the shmctl(2) system call.

       command The command, exactly as to be passed to the shmctl(2) system call.

       data    The data, exactly as to be passed to the shmctl(2) system call.

RETURN VALUE

       The  explain_shmctl_or_die  function  only  returns  on  success,  see  shmctl(2) for more
       information. On failure, prints an explanation and exits, it does not return.

       The explain_shmctl_on_error function always  returns  the  value  return  by  the  wrapped
       shmctl(2) system call.

EXAMPLE

       The  explain_shmctl_or_die  function  is  intended  to be used in a fashion similar to the
       following example:
              explain_shmctl_or_die(shmid, command, data);
