ACL_SET_PERMSET(3)    BSD Library Functions Manual    ACL_SET_PERMSET(3)

NAME         top

     acl_set_permset — set the permission set in an ACL entry

LIBRARY         top

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

SYNOPSIS         top

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

     int
     acl_set_permset(acl_entry_t entry_d, acl_permset_t permset_d);

DESCRIPTION         top

     The acl_set_permset() function sets the permission set of the ACL
     entry indicated by the argument entry_d to the permissions
     contained in the argument permset_d.

     Any ACL entry descriptors that refer to the entry containing the
     permission set referred to by permset_d shall continue to refer to
     those entries. Any ACL entry descriptors that refer to the entry
     referred to by entry_d shall continue to refer to that entry.

RETURN VALUE         top

     The acl_set_permset() 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_set_permset()
     function returns -1 and sets errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]           The argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor
                        for an ACL entry.

                        The argument permset_d is not a valid descriptor
                        for a permission set within an ACL entry.

                        The argument permset_d contains values which are
                        not valid acl_permset_t values.
