int explain_getpriority_or_die(int which, int who);
int explain_getpriority_on_error(int which, int who);

Description

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

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

which
The which, exactly as to be passed to the getpriority(2) system call.
who
The who, exactly as to be passed to the getpriority(2) system call.

Return Value

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

The explain_getpriority_on_error function always returns the value return by the wrapped getpriority(2) system call.

Example

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

int result = explain_getpriority_or_die(which, who);
