NAME         top

       capng_print_caps_text - print names of values for capabilities
       set

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <cap-ng.h>

       char *capng_print_caps_text(capng_print_t where, capng_type_t
       which);

DESCRIPTION         top

       capng_print_caps_text will create a text string representation of
       the internal capability set specified. 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 legal values for the which paramemeter is CAPNG_EFFECTIVE,
       CAPNG_PERMITTED, CAPNG_INHERITABLE, CAPNG_BOUNDING_SET, or
       CAPNG_AMBIENT.

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.
