ACL_DELETE_DEF_FILE(3)  BSD Library Functions Manual  ACL_DELETE_DEF_FILE(3)

NAME         top

     acl_delete_def_file — delete a default ACL by filename

LIBRARY         top

     Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).

SYNOPSIS         top

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

     int
     acl_delete_def_file(const char *path_p);

DESCRIPTION         top

     The acl_delete_def_file() function deletes a default ACL from the
     directory whose pathname is pointed to by the argument path_p.

     The effective user ID of the process must match the owner of the file
     or directory or the process must have the CAP_FOWNER capability for the
     request to succeed.

     If the argument path_p is not a directory, then the function fails. It
     is no error if the directory whose pathname is pointed to by the argu‐
     ment path_p does not have a default ACL.

RETURN VALUE         top

     The acl_delete_def_file() 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         top

     If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_delete_def_file()
     function returns the value -1 and and sets errno to the corresponding
     value:

     [EINVAL]           The file referred to by path_p is not a directory.

     [ENOTSUP]          The file system on which the file identified by
                        path_p is located does not support ACLs, or ACLs are
                        disabled.

     [EPERM]            The process does not have appropriate privilege to
                        perform the operation to delete the default ACL.

     [EROFS]            This function requires modification of a file system
                        which is currently read-only.
