NAME
acl_free -- free ACL working state LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/acl.h> int acl_free(void *obj_p); DESCRIPTION
The acl_free() call allows the freeing of ACL working space, such as is allocated by acl_dup(3), or acl_from_text(3). IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
FreeBSD's support for POSIX.1e interfaces and features is still under development at this time. RETURN VALUES
The acl_free() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indi- cate the error. ERRORS
If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_free() function shall return -1 and set errno to the corresponding value: [EINVAL] The value of the obj_p argument is invalid. SEE ALSO
acl(3), acl_dup(3), acl_from_text(3), acl_get(3), acl_init(3), posix1e(3) STANDARDS
POSIX.1e is described in IEEE POSIX.1e draft 17. Discussion of the draft continues on the cross-platform POSIX.1e implementation mailing list. To join this list, see the FreeBSD POSIX.1e implementation page for more information. HISTORY
POSIX.1e support was introduced in FreeBSD 4.0, and development continues. AUTHORS

NAME
acl_free -- release memory allocated to an ACL data object LIBRARY
Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl). SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/acl.h> int acl_free(void *obj_p); DESCRIPTION
The acl_free() function frees any releasable memory currently allocated by to the ACL data object identified by obj_p. The argument obj_p may identify an ACL, an ACL entry qualifier, or a pointer to a string allocated by the acl_to_text() function. RETURN VALUE
The acl_free() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indi- cate the error. ERRORS
If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_free() function returns the value -1 and and sets errno to the corresponding value: [EINVAL] The value of the argument obj_p is invalid. STANDARDS
