ACL_GET_ENTRY

Section: C Library Functions (3)
Index Return to Main Contents

BSD mandoc
Linux ACL  

NAME

acl_get_entry - get an ACL entry  

LIBRARY

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

SYNOPSIS

In sys/types.h In sys/acl.h Ft int Fn acl_get_entry acl_t acl int entry_id acl_entry_t *entry_p  

DESCRIPTION

The Fn acl_get_entry function obtains a descriptor for an ACL entry as specified by entry_id within the ACL indicated by the argument acl If the value of entry_id is ACL_FIRST_ENTRY, then the function returns in entry_p a descriptor for the first ACL entry within acl If the value of entry_id is ACL_NEXT_ENTRY, then the function returns in entry_p a descriptor for the next ACL entry within acl

If a call is made to Fn acl_get_entry with entry_id set to ACL_NEXT_ENTRY when there has not been either an initial successful call to Fn acl_get_entry , or a previous successful call to Fn acl_get_entry following a call to Fn acl_calc_mask , Fn acl_copy_int , Fn acl_create_entry , Fn acl_delete_entry , Fn acl_dup , Fn acl_from_text , Fn acl_get_fd , Fn acl_get_file , Fn acl_set_fd , Fn acl_set_file , or Fn acl_valid , then the effect is unspecified.

Calls to Fn acl_get_entry do not modify any ACL entries. Subsequent operations using the returned ACL entry descriptor operate on the ACL entry within the ACL in working storage. The order of all existing entries in the ACL remains unchanged. Any existing ACL entry descriptors that refer to entries within the ACL continue to refer to those entries. Any existing ACL pointers that refer to the ACL referred to by acl continue to refer to the ACL.  

RETURN VALUE

If the function successfully obtains an ACL entry, the function returns a value of 1 If the ACL has no ACL entries, the function returns the value 0 If the value of entry_id is ACL_NEXT_ENTRY and the last ACL entry in the ACL has already been returned by a previous call to Fn acl_get_entry , the function returns the value 0 until a successful call with an entry_id of ACL_FIRST_ENTRY is made. Otherwise, the value -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.  

ERRORS

If any of the following conditions occur, the Fn acl_get_entry function returns -1 and sets errno to the corresponding value:

Bq Er EINVAL
The argument acl_p is not a valid pointer to an ACL.

The argument entry_id is neither ACL_NEXT_ENTRY nor ACL_FIRST_ENTRY.
