explain_realloc_or_die - Allocate and free dynamic memory and report errors
void explain_realloc_or_die(void *ptr, size_t size);
The explain_realloc_or_die function is used to call the realloc(3) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_realloc(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:
void *new_ptr = explain_realloc_or_die(ptr, size);
