acl_add_perm

ACL_ADD_PERM(3)           BSD Library Functions Manual           ACL_ADD_PERM(3)

NAME
     acl_add_perm — add a permission to an ACL permission set

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

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

     int
     acl_add_perm(acl_permset_t permset_d, acl_perm_t perm);

DESCRIPTION
     The acl_add_perm() function adds the permission contained in the argument
     perm (one of ACL_READ, ACL_WRITE, ACL_EXECUTE) to the permission set
     referred to by the argument permset_d.  An attempt to add a permission that
     is already contained in the permission set is not considered an error.

     Any existing descriptors that refer to permset_d continue to refer to that
     permission set.

RETURN VALUE
     The acl_add_perm() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise
     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_add_perm() function
     returns -1 and sets errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]           The argument permset_d is not a valid descriptor for a
                        permission set within an ACL entry.

                        The argument perm does not contain a valid acl_perm_t
                        value.

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