cap_fcntls_get(2) [freebsd man page]

CAP_FCNTLS_LIMIT(2)					      BSD System Calls Manual					       CAP_FCNTLS_LIMIT(2)

cap_fcntls_limit, cap_fcntls_get -- manage allowed fcntl commands LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/capsicum.h> int cap_fcntls_limit(int fd, uint32_t fcntlrights); int cap_fcntls_get(int fd, uint32_t *fcntlrightsp); DESCRIPTION
If a file descriptor is granted the CAP_FCNTL capability right, the list of allowed fcntl(2) commands can be selectively reduced (but never expanded) with the cap_fcntls_limit() system call. A bitmask of allowed fcntls commands for a given file descriptor can be obtained with the cap_fcntls_get() system call. FLAGS
The following flags may be specified in the fcntlrights argument or returned in the fcntlrightsp argument: CAP_FCNTL_GETFL Permit F_GETFL command. CAP_FCNTL_SETFL Permit F_SETFL command. CAP_FCNTL_GETOWN Permit F_GETOWN command. CAP_FCNTL_SETOWN Permit F_SETOWN command. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, the value 0 is returned; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error. ERRORS
cap_fcntls_limit() succeeds unless: [EBADF] The fd argument is not a valid descriptor. [EINVAL] An invalid flag has been passed in fcntlrights. [ENOTCAPABLE] fcntlrights would expand the list of allowed fcntl(2) commands. cap_fcntls_get() succeeds unless: [EBADF] The fd argument is not a valid descriptor. [EFAULT] The fcntlrightsp argument points at an invalid address. SEE ALSO
