explain_getrlimit_or_die — get resource limits and report errors

Synopsis

#include <libexplain/getrlimit.h>

void explain_getrlimit_or_die(int resource, struct rlimit *rlim);

Description

The explain_getrlimit_or_die function is used to call the getrlimit(2) system call.  On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_getrlimit(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_getrlimit_or_die(resource, rlim);
resource

The resource, exactly as to be passed to the getrlimit(2) system call.

rlim

The rlim, exactly as to be passed to the getrlimit(2) system call.

Returns:

This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.
