ACL_GET_PERMSET(3)					   BSD Library Functions Manual 					ACL_GET_PERMSET(3)

NAME
acl_get_permset -- retrieve the permission set from an ACL entry LIBRARY
Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl). SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/acl.h> int acl_get_permset(acl_entry_t entry_d, acl_permset_t *permset_p); DESCRIPTION
The acl_get_permset() function returns in permset_p a descriptor to the permission set in the ACL entry indicated by entry_d. Subsequent operations using the returned permission set descriptor operate on the permission set within the ACL entry. Any ACL entry descriptors that refer to the entry referred to by entry_d shall continue to refer to those entries. RETURN VALUE
The acl_get_permset() 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_get_permset() function returns -1 and sets errno to the corresponding value: [EINVAL] The argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry. STANDARDS

ACL_GET_QUALIFIER(3)					   BSD Library Functions Manual 				      ACL_GET_QUALIFIER(3)

NAME
acl_get_qualifier -- retrieve the qualifier from an ACL entry LIBRARY
Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl). SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/acl.h> void * acl_get_qualifier(acl_entry_t entry_d); DESCRIPTION
The acl_get_qualifier() function retrieves the qualifier from the ACL entry indicated by the argument entry_d into working storage and returns a pointer to that storage. If the value of the tag type in the ACL entry referred to by entry_d is ACL_USER, then the value returned by acl_get_qualifier() is a pointer to type uid_t. If the value of the tag type in the ACL entry referred to by entry_d is ACL_GROUP, then the value returned by acl_get_qualifier() is a pointer to type gid_t. If the tag type in the ACL entry referred to by entry_d is a tag type for which a qualifier is not supported, acl_get_qualifier() returns a value of (void *)NULL and the function fails. Subsequent operations using the returned pointer operate on an independent copy of the qualifier in working storage, and will not change the qualifier of the ACL entry. This function may cause memory to be allocated. The caller should free any releasable memory, when the new qualifier is no longer required, by calling acl_free() with the void * value returned by acl_get_qualifier() as an argument. The argument entry_d and any other ACL entry descriptors that refer to entries within the ACL containing the entry referred to by entry_d continue to refer to those entries. The order of all existing entries in the ACL containing the entry referred to by entry_d remains unchanged. RETURN VALUE
On success, the function returns a pointer to the tag qualifier that was retrieved into ACL working storage. On error, a value of (void *)NULL is returned and errno is set appropriately. ERRORS
If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_get_qualifier() function returns (void *)NULL and sets errno to the corresponding value: [EINVAL] The argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry. The value of the tag type in the ACL entry referenced by the argument entry_d is neither ACL_USER nor ACL_GROUP. [ENOMEM] The value to be returned requires more memory than is allowed by the hardware or system-imposed memory management con- straints. STANDARDS
