explain_read_or_die(3) FreeBSD Library Functions Manual explain_read_or_die(3)

explain_read_or_die - read from a file descriptor and report errors

#include <libexplain/read.h>
long explain_read_or_die(int fildes, const void *data, long data_size);

The explain_read_or_die function is used to call the read(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_read(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_read_or_die(fildes, data, data_size);
fildes
The fildes, exactly as to be passed to the read(2) system call.
data
The data, exactly as to be passed to the read(2) system call.
data_size
The data_size, exactly as to be passed to the read(2) system call.
Returns:
This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.

read(2)
read from a file descriptor
explain_read(3)
explain read(2) errors
exit(2)
terminate the calling process
