NAME         top

     acl_copy_entry — copy an ACL entry

LIBRARY         top

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

SYNOPSIS         top

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

     int
     acl_copy_entry(acl_entry_t dest_d, acl_entry_t src_d);

DESCRIPTION         top

     The acl_copy_entry() function copies the contents of the ACL entry
     indicated by the src_d descriptor to the existing ACL entry
     indicated by the dest_d descriptor. The src_d and dest_d
     descriptors may refer to entries in different ACLs.

RETURN VALUE         top

     The acl_copy_entry() function returns the value 0 if successful;
     otherwise 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_copy_entry()
     function returns -1 and sets errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]           The argument src_d or dest_d is not a valid
                        descriptor for an ACL entry.

                        The arguments src_d and dest_d reference the
                        same ACL entry.
