NAME         top

       set_matchpathcon_flags,  set_matchpathcon_invalidcon,  set_matchpath‐
       con_printf - set flags controlling the operation of  matchpathcon  or
       matchpathcon_index  and  configure the behaviour of validity checking
       and error displaying

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       void set_matchpathcon_flags(unsigned int flags);

       void set_matchpathcon_invalidcon(int (*f)(const char *path, unsigned
       lineno, char *context));

       void set_matchpathcon_printf(void (*f)(const char *fmt, ...));

DESCRIPTION         top

       set_matchpathcon_flags() sets the flags controlling the operation of
       matchpathcon_init(3) and subsequently matchpathcon_index(3) or
       matchpathcon(3).  If the MATCHPATHCON_BASEONLY flag is set, then only
       the base file contexts configuration file will be processed, not any
       dynamically generated entries or local customizations.

       set_matchpathcon_invalidcon() sets the function used by
       matchpathcon_init(3) when checking the validity of a context in the
       file contexts configuration.  If not set, then this defaults to a
       test based on security_check_context(3), which checks validity
       against the active policy on a SELinux system.  This can be set to
       instead perform checking based on a binary policy file, e.g. using
       sepol_check_context(3), as is done by setfiles -c.  The function is
       also responsible for reporting any such error, and may include the
       path and lineno in such error messages.

       set_matchpathcon_printf() sets the function used by
       matchpathcon_init(3) when displaying errors about the file contexts
       configuration.  If not set, then this defaults to fprintf(stderr,
       fmt, ...).  This can be set to redirect error reporting to a
       different destination.

RETURN VALUE         top

       Returns zero on success or -1 otherwise.
