ACL_COPY_ENTRY(3)         BSD Library Functions Manual         ACL_COPY_ENTRY(3)

NAME
     acl_copy_entry — copy an ACL entry

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

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

     int
     acl_copy_entry(acl_entry_t dest_d, acl_entry_t src_d);

DESCRIPTION
     The acl_copy_entry() function copies the contents of the ACL entry
     indicated by the src_d descriptor to the existing ACL entry indicated by
     the dest_d descriptor. The src_d and dest_d descriptors may refer to
     entries in different ACLs.

RETURN VALUE
     The acl_copy_entry() 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_copy_entry() function
     returns -1 and sets errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]           The argument src_d or dest_d is not a valid descriptor
                        for an ACL entry.

                        The arguments src_d and dest_d reference the same ACL
                        entry.

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