ACL_GET_TAG_TYPE(3)     BSD Library Functions Manual     ACL_GET_TAG_TYPE(3)

NAME         top

     acl_get_tag_type — get the tag type of an ACL entry

LIBRARY         top

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

SYNOPSIS         top

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

     int
     acl_get_tag_type(acl_entry_t entry_d, acl_tag_t *tag_type_p);

DESCRIPTION         top

     The acl_get_tag_type() function assigns to the value pointed to by
     tag_type_p the tag type for the ACL entry indicated by the argument
     entry_d.

     The argument entry_d and any other ACL entry descriptors that refer to
     entries in the same ACL continue to refer to those entries. The order
     of all existing entries in the ACL remain unchanged.

RETURN VALUE         top

     The acl_get_tag_type() 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_get_tag_type() func‐
     tion returns -1 and sets errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]           The argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for
                        an ACL entry.

STANDARDS         top

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