SYNOPSIS

"#include <sys/types.h>"
"#include <sys/stat.h>"

"mode_t getumask(void);"

DESCRIPTION

This function returns the current file creation mask. It is equivalent to
mode_t getumask(void) {
mode_t mask = umask(0);
umask(mask);
return mask;
}

except that it is documented to be thread-safe (that is, shares a lock with the umask() library call).

NOTES

This function is documented but not implemented yet in glibc 2.2.5.

"CONFORMING TO"

This is a vapourware GNU extension.
