Synopsis

#include <libexplain/closedir.h>

This function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following example:

explain_closedir_or_die(dir);
dir
The dir, exactly as to be passed to the closedir(3) system call.
Returns:
This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
