Manual Pages  — ACL_DELETE_ENTRY

NAME

acl_delete_entry, acl_delete_entry_np – delete an ACL entry from an ACL

CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

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

int
acl_delete_entry(acl_t acl, acl_entry_t entry_d);

int
acl_delete_entry_np(acl_t acl, int index);

DESCRIPTION

The acl_delete_entry() function is a POSIX.1e call that removes the ACL entry entry_d from ACL acl. The acl_delete_entry_np() function is a non-portable version that removes the ACL entry at position index from ACL acl. Positions are numbered starting from zero, i.e. calling acl_delete_entry_np() with index argument equal to zero will remove the first ACL entry.

RETURN VALUES

The acl_delete_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

The acl_delete_entry() function fails if:
[EINVAL]
  Argument acl does not point to a valid ACL. Argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry in acl. Argument index is out of bounds.

SEE ALSO
