NAME

       explain_utimes_or_die - change file access and modify times and report errors

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libexplain/utimes.h>
       void explain_utimes_or_die(const char *pathname, const struct timeval *data);
       int explain_utimes_on_error(const char *pathname, const struct timeval *data);

DESCRIPTION

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

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

       pathname
               The pathname, exactly as to be passed to the utimes(2) system call.

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

RETURN VALUE

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

       The explain_utimes_on_error function always  returns  the  value  return  by  the  wrapped
       utimes(2) system call.

EXAMPLE

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