NAME         top

     acl_delete_def_file — delete a default ACL by filename

LIBRARY         top

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

SYNOPSIS         top

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

     int
     acl_delete_def_file(const char *path_p);

DESCRIPTION         top

     The acl_delete_def_file() function deletes a default ACL from the
     directory whose pathname is pointed to by the argument path_p.

     The effective user ID of the process must match the owner of the
     file or directory or the process must have the CAP_FOWNER
     capability for the request to succeed.

     If the argument path_p is not a directory, then the function fails.
     It is no error if the directory whose pathname is pointed to by the
     argument path_p does not have a default ACL.

RETURN VALUE         top

     The acl_delete_def_file() 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_delete_def_file()
     function returns the value -1 and and sets errno to the
     corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]           The file referred to by path_p is not a
                        directory.

     [ENOTSUP]          The file system on which the file identified by
                        path_p is located does not support ACLs, or ACLs
                        are disabled.

     [EPERM]            The process does not have appropriate privilege
                        to perform the operation to delete the default
                        ACL.

     [EROFS]            This function requires modification of a file
                        system which is currently read-only.
