|ACL_CREATE_ENTRY(3)||Library Functions Manual||ACL_CREATE_ENTRY(3)|
LIBRARY¶Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).
acl_create_entry() function creates a new ACL entry in the ACL pointed to by the contents of the pointer argument acl_p. On success, the function returns a descriptor for the new ACL entry via entry_p.
This function may cause memory to be allocated. The caller should free any releasable memory, when the new ACL is no longer required, by calling acl_free(3) with (void*)*acl_p as an argument. If the ACL working storage cannot be increased in the current location, then the working storage for the ACL pointed to by acl_p may be relocated and the previous working storage is released. A pointer to the new working storage is returned via acl_p.
The components of the new ACL entry are initialized in the following ways: the ACL tag type component contains ACL_UNDEFINED_TAG, the qualifier component contains ACL_UNDEFINED_ID, and the set of permissions has no permissions enabled. Any existing ACL entry descriptors that refer to entries in the ACL continue to refer to those entries.
acl_create_entry() 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¶If any of the following conditions occur, the
acl_create_entry() function returns
-1and sets errno to the corresponding value:
