CAPNG_GET_CAPS_PROCESS(3)		  Libcap-ng API 		CAPNG_GET_CAPS_PROCESS(3)

NAME
       capng_get_caps_process - get the capabilities from a process

SYNOPSIS
       #include <cap-ng.h>

       int capng_get_caps_process(void);

DESCRIPTION
       capng_get_caps_process will get the capabilities and bounding set of the pid stored inside
       libcap-ng's state table. The default is the pid	of  the  running  process.  This  can  be
       changed by using the capng_setpid function.

RETURN VALUE
       This returns 0 on success and -1 on failure.

NOTES
       If you are doing multi-threaded programming, calling this function will only get capabili-
       ties on the calling thread. If you want to get overall capabilities for	a  multi-threaded
       process, you can only do that before creating any threads. Afterwards, threads may be able
       to independantly set capabilities.
