Manual Pages  — ACL_SET_ENTRY_TYPE_NP

NAME

acl_set_entry_type_np – set NFSv4 ACL entry type

CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

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

int
acl_set_entry_type_np(acl_entry_t entry_d, acl_entry_type_t entry_type);

DESCRIPTION

The acl_set_entry_type_np() function is a non-portable call that sets the type of the NFSv4 ACL entry entry_d to the value referred to by entry_type.

Valid values are:

ACL_ENTRY_TYPE_ALLOW
allow type entry

ACL_ENTRY_TYPE_DENY
deny type entry

This call brands the ACL as NFSv4.

RETURN VALUES

The acl_set_entry_type_np 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_set_entry_type_np() function fails if:
[EINVAL]
  Argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry. The value pointed to by entry_type is not valid. ACL is already branded as POSIX.1e.
[ENOMEM]
  The value to be returned requires more memory than is allowed by the hardware or system-imposed memory management constraints.

SEE ALSO

acl(3), acl_get_brand_np(3), acl_get_entry_type_np(3), posix1e(3)

STANDARDS

POSIX.1e is described in IEEE POSIX.1e draft 17.

HISTORY

POSIX.1e support was introduced in FreeBSD 4.0 . The acl_get_entry_type_np() function was added in FreeBSD 8.0 .

AUTHORS

The acl_get_entry_type_np() function was written by Edward Tomasz Napierala <Mt trasz@FreeBSD.org>.

A typical Unix /bin or /usr/bin directory contains a hundred different kinds of programs, written by dozens of egotistical programmers, each with its own syntax, operating paradigm, rules of use ... strategies for specifying options, and different sets of constraints.
