CAPNG_GET_CAPS_PROCESS(3)       Libcap-ng API      CAPNG_GET_CAPS_PROCESS(3)

NAME         top

       capng_get_caps_process - get the capabilities from a process

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <cap-ng.h>

       int capng_get_caps_process(void);

DESCRIPTION         top

       capng_get_caps_process will get the capabilities and bounding set of
       the pid stored inside libcap-ng's state table. The default is the pid
       of the running process. This can be changed by using the capng_setpid
       function.

RETURN VALUE         top

       This returns 0 on success and -1 on failure.

NOTES         top

       If you are doing multi-threaded programming, calling this function
       will only get capabilities on the calling thread. If you want to get
       overall capabilities for a multi-threaded process, you can only do
       that before creating any threads. Afterwards, threads may be able to
       independantly set capabilities.
