#include <libexplain/fopen.h>

RETURN VALUE

Upon successful completion B]explain_fopen_or_die returns a I]FILE pointer.

If an error occurs, B]explain_fopen will be called to explain the error, which will be printed onto I]stderr, and then the process will terminate by calling CW]exit(EXIT_FAILURE).
