ACL_DELETE_ENTRY(3)     BSD Library Functions Manual     ACL_DELETE_ENTRY(3)

NAME         top

     acl_delete_entry — delete an ACL entry

LIBRARY         top

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

SYNOPSIS         top

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

     int
     acl_delete_entry(acl_t acl, acl_entry_t entry_d);

DESCRIPTION         top

     The acl_delete_entry() function removes the ACL entry indicated by the
     entry_d descriptor from the ACL pointed to by acl.  Any existing ACL
     entry descriptors that refer to entries in acl other than that referred
     to by entry_d continue to refer to the same entries. The argument
     entry_d and any other ACL entry descriptors that refer to the same ACL
     entry are undefined after this function completes. Any existing ACL
     pointers that refer to the ACL referred to by acl continue to refer to
     the ACL.

RETURN VALUE         top

     The acl_delete_entry() function returns the value 0 if successful; oth‐
     erwise 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_entry() func‐
     tion returns -1 and sets errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]           The argument acl_p is not a valid pointer to an ACL.

                        The argument entry_d is not a valid pointer to an
                        ACL entry.

STANDARDS         top

     IEEE Std 1003.1e draft 17 (“POSIX.1e”, abandoned)
