NAME
explain_bind_or_die - bind a name to a socket and report errors SYNOPSIS
#include <libexplain/bind.h> void explain_bind_or_die(int fildes, const struct sockaddr *sock_addr, int sock_addr_size); DESCRIPTION
The explain_bind_or_die function is used to call the bind(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_bind(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_bind_or_die(fildes, sock_addr, sock_addr_size); fildes The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the bind(2) system call. sock_addr The sock_addr, exactly as to be passed to the bind(2) system call. sock_addr_size The sock_addr_size, exactly as to be passed to the bind(2) system call. Returns: This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits. SEE ALSO
