NAME         top

       set_matchpathcon_flags, set_matchpathcon_invalidcon,
       set_matchpathcon_printf - set flags controlling the operation of
       matchpathcon or matchpathcon_index and configure the behaviour of
       validity checking and error displaying

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       void set_matchpathcon_flags(unsigned int flags);

       void set_matchpathcon_invalidcon(int (*f)(const char *path,
       unsigned lineno, char *context));

       void set_matchpathcon_printf(void (*f)(const char *fmt, ...));

DESCRIPTION         top

       set_matchpathcon_flags() sets the flags controlling the operation
       of matchpathcon_init(3) and subsequently matchpathcon_index(3) or
       matchpathcon(3).  If the MATCHPATHCON_BASEONLY flag is set, then
       only the base file contexts configuration file will be processed,
       not any dynamically generated entries or local customizations.

       set_matchpathcon_invalidcon() sets the function used by
       matchpathcon_init(3) when checking the validity of a context in
       the file contexts configuration.  If not set, then this defaults
       to a test based on security_check_context(3), which checks
       validity against the active policy on a SELinux system.  This can
       be set to instead perform checking based on a binary policy file,
       e.g. using sepol_check_context(3), as is done by setfiles -c.
       The function is also responsible for reporting any such error,
       and may include the path and lineno in such error messages.

       set_matchpathcon_printf() sets the function used by
       matchpathcon_init(3) when displaying errors about the file
       contexts configuration.  If not set, then this defaults to
       fprintf(stderr, fmt, ...).  This can be set to redirect error
       reporting to a different destination.

RETURN VALUE         top

       Returns zero on success or -1 otherwise.
