SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <selinux/restorecon.h>

       struct selabel_handle *selinux_restorecon_default_handle(void);

DESCRIPTION         top

       selinux_restorecon_default_handle() sets default parameters for
       selinux_restorecon(3) by calling selabel_open(3) with the
       SELABEL_OPT_DIGEST option only. This will enable a digest to be
       calculated on the currently loaded policy file_contexts(5) set of
       files as described in the NOTES section of selinux_restorecon(3).

       Calling selinux_restorecon_default_handle() is optional, however
       if used then selinux_restorecon_set_sehandle(3) should be called
       with the returned handle to set this for use by

       selinux_restorecon_default_handle() is optional as
       selinux_restorecon(3) will automatically call this and
       selinux_restorecon_set_sehandle(3) provided a handle has not
       already been set, for example by
       selinux_restorecon_set_sehandle(3) to set customised
       selabel_open(3) parameters.

RETURN VALUE         top

       A non-NULL handle value is returned on success. On error, NULL is
       returned and errno is set appropriately.
