explain_socket_or_die - create an endpoint and report errors
void explain_socket_or_die(int domain, int type, int protocol);
The explain_socket_or_die function is used to call the socket(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_socket(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_socket_or_die(domain, type, protocol);
- The domain, exactly as to be passed to the socket(2) system call.
- The type, exactly as to be passed to the socket(2) system call.
- The protocol, exactly as to be passed to the socket(2) system call.
- This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
