LIBRARY


.Lb libc

SYNOPSIS


.In sys/types.h
.In sys/acl.h int acl_set_fd "int fd" "acl_t acl" int acl_set_fd_np "int fd" "acl_t acl" "acl_type_t type" int acl_set_file "const char *path_p" "acl_type_t type" "acl_t acl" int acl_set_link_np "const char *path_p" "acl_type_t type" "acl_t acl"

DESCRIPTION

The acl_set_fd, acl_set_fd_np, acl_set_file, and acl_set_link_np each associate an ACL with an object referred to by fd or path_p. The acl_set_fd_np and acl_set_link_np functions are not POSIX.1e calls. The acl_set_fd function allows only the setting of ACLs of type ACL_TYPE_ACCESS where as acl_set_fd_np allows the setting of ACLs of any type. The acl_set_link_np function acts on a symlink rather than its target, if the target of the path is a symlink.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES


.Fx Ns ’s support for POSIX.1e interfaces and features is still under development at this time.

RETURN VALUES


.Rv -std

ERRORS

If any of the following conditions occur, these functions shall return -1 and set errno to the corresponding value:
[EACCES]
Search permission is denied for a component of the path prefix, or the object exists and the process does not have appropriate access rights.
[EBADF]
The fd argument is not a valid file descriptor.
[EINVAL]
Argument acl does not point to a valid ACL for this object, or the ACL type specified in type is invalid for this object, or both.
[ENAMETOOLONG]
A component of a pathname exceeded 255 characters, or an entire path name exceeded 1023 characters.
[ENOENT]
The named object does not exist, or the path_p argument points to an empty string.
[ENOMEM]
Insufficient memory available to fulfill request.
[ENOSPC]
The directory or file system that would contain the new ACL cannot be extended, or the file system is out of file allocation resources.
[EOPNOTSUPP]
The file system does not support ACL retrieval.
[EROFS]
This function requires modification of a file system which is currently read-only.
