       fchmodat - change permissions of a file relative to a directory file descriptor

       #include <fcntl.h>	    /* Definition of AT_* constants */
       #include <sys/stat.h>

       int fchmodat(int dirfd, const char *pathname, mode_t mode, int flags);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

	   Since glibc 2.10:
	       _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 700 || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L
	   Before glibc 2.10:

       The  fchmodat()	system	call operates in exactly the same way as chmod(2), except for the
       differences described in this manual page.

       If the pathname given in pathname is relative, then it  is  interpreted	relative  to  the
       directory  referred  to	by the file descriptor dirfd (rather than relative to the current
       working directory of the calling process, as is done by chmod(2) for a relative pathname).

       If pathname is relative and dirfd is the special value AT_FDCWD, then pathname  is  inter-
       preted relative to the current working directory of the calling process (like chmod(2)).

       If pathname is absolute, then dirfd is ignored.

       flags can either be 0, or include the following flag:

	      If  pathname is a symbolic link, do not dereference it: instead operate on the link
	      itself.  This flag is not currently implemented.

       On success, fchmodat() returns 0.  On error, -1 is returned and errno is set  to  indicate
       the error.

       The  same  errors  that	occur  for chmod(2) can also occur for fchmodat().  The following
       additional errors can occur for fchmodat():

       EBADF  dirfd is not a valid file descriptor.

       EINVAL Invalid flag specified in flags.

	      pathname is relative and dirfd is a file descriptor referring to a file other  than
	      a directory.

	      flags specified AT_SYMLINK_NOFOLLOW, which is not supported.

       fchmodat() was added to Linux in kernel 2.6.16; library support was added to glibc in ver-
       sion 2.4.


       See openat(2) for an explanation of the need for fchmodat().

       The GNU C library wrapper function implements the POSIX-specified interface  described  in
       this  page.   This interface differs from the underlying Linux system call, which does not
       have a flags argument.
