acl_get_permset

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
     operations using the returned permission set descriptor operate on the
     permission 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; 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_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)
