NAME         top

       capng_print_caps_numeric - print numeric values for capabilities set

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <cap-ng.h>

       char *capng_print_caps_numeric(capng_print_t where, capng_select_t

DESCRIPTION         top

       capng_print_caps_numeric will create a numeric representation of the
       internal capabilities. The representation can be sent to either
       stdout or a buffer by passing CAPNG_PRINT_STDOUT or
       CAPNG_PRINT_BUFFER respectively for the where parameter. If the
       option was for a buffer, this function will malloc a buffer that the
       caller must free.

       The set parameter controls what is included in the representation.
       The legal options are CAPNG_SELECT_CAPS for the traditional
       capabilities, CAPNG_SELECT_BOUNDS for the bounding set, or
       CAPNG_SELECT_BOTH if clearing both is desired.

RETURN VALUE         top

       If CAPNG_PRINT_BUFFER was selected for where, this will be the text
       buffer and NULL on failure. If CAPNG_PRINT_STDOUT was selected then
       this value will be NULL no matter what.
