NAME

       explain_tcsetattr_or_die - set terminal attributes and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/tcsetattr.h>
       void explain_tcsetattr_or_die(int fildes, int options, const struct termios *data);
       int explain_tcsetattr_on_error(int fildes, int options, const struct termios *data);

DESCRIPTION

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

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

       fildes  The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the tcsetattr(3) system call.

       options The options, exactly as to be passed to the tcsetattr(3) system call.

       data    The data, exactly as to be passed to the tcsetattr(3) system call.

RETURN VALUE

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

       The explain_tcsetattr_on_error function always returns the value  return  by  the  wrapped
       tcsetattr(3) system call.

EXAMPLE

       The  explain_tcsetattr_or_die  function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the
       following example:
              explain_tcsetattr_or_die(fildes, options, data);
