acl_delete_entry_np(3) [freebsd man page]

ACL_DELETE_ENTRY(3)					   BSD Library Functions Manual 				       ACL_DELETE_ENTRY(3)

NAME
acl_delete_entry, acl_delete_entry_np -- delete an ACL entry from an ACL LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/acl.h> int acl_delete_entry(acl_t acl, acl_entry_t entry_d); int acl_delete_entry_np(acl_t acl, int index); DESCRIPTION
The acl_delete_entry() function is a POSIX.1e call that removes the ACL entry entry_d from ACL acl. The acl_delete_entry_np() function is a non-portable version that removes the ACL entry at position index from ACL acl. Positions are numbered starting from zero, i.e. calling acl_delete_entry_np() with index argument equal to zero will remove the first ACL entry. RETURN VALUES
The acl_delete_entry() 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
The acl_delete_entry() function fails if: [EINVAL] Argument acl does not point to a valid ACL. Argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry in acl. Argument index is out of bounds. SEE ALSO
acl(3), acl_copy_entry(3), acl_get_entry(3), posix1e(3) STANDARDS
POSIX.1e is described in IEEE POSIX.1e draft 17. HISTORY
POSIX.1e support was introduced in FreeBSD 4.0. The acl_delete_entry() function was added in FreeBSD 5.0. AUTHORS
The acl_delete_entry() function was written by Chris D. Faulhaber <jedgar@fxp.org>. BSD
