ACL_FROM_MODE(3)        BSD Library Functions Manual        ACL_FROM_MODE(3)

NAME         top

     acl_from_mode — create an ACL from file permission bits

LIBRARY         top

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

SYNOPSIS         top

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

     acl_t
     acl_from_mode(mode_t mode);

DESCRIPTION         top

     The acl_from_mode() function creates a minimal ACL that contains the
     three entries with tag types ACL_USER_OBJ, ACL_GROUP_OBJ, and
     ACL_OTHER, with permissions corresponding to the owner, group, and
     other permission bits of its argument mode.

RETURN VALUE         top

     On success, this function returns a pointer to the working storage. On
     error, a value of (acl_t)NULL is returned, and errno is set appropri‐
     ately.

ERRORS         top

     If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_from_mode() function
     returns a value of (acl_t)NULL and sets errno to the corresponding
     value:

     [ENOMEM]           The ACL working storage requires more memory than is
                        allowed by the hardware or system-imposed memory
                        management constraints.

STANDARDS         top

     This is a non-portable, Linux specific extension to the ACL
     manipulation functions defined in IEEE Std 1003.1e draft 17
     (“POSIX.1e”, abandoned).

SEE ALSO         top
