ACL_GET_PERMSET(3) BSD Library Functions Manual ACL_GET_PERMSET(3)

NAME acl_get_permset - retrieve the permission set from an ACL entry

LIBRARY Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).

SYNOPSIS #include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/acl.h>

int acl_get_permset(acl_entry_t entry_d, acl_permset_t *permset_p);

DESCRIPTION The acl_get_permset() function returns in permset_p a descriptor to the permission set in the ACL entry indicated by entry_d. Subsequent opera- tions using the returned permission set descriptor operate on the permis- sion set within the ACL entry.

Any ACL entry descriptors that refer to the entry referred to by entry_d shall continue to refer to those entries.

RETURN VALUE The acl_get_permset() function returns the value 0 if successful; other- wise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_get_permset() function returns -1 and sets errno to the corresponding value:

[EINVAL] The argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry.

STANDARDS IEEE Std 1003.1e draft 17 (POSIX.1e, abandoned)
