posix_spawn_file_actions_addclosefrom_np - add closefrom action to spawn file actions object
#include <spawn.h> int posix_spawn_file_actions_addclosefrom_np( posix_spawn_file_actions_t *file_actions, int lowfildes);
The posix_spawn_file_actions_addclosefrom_np() function adds a closefrom action to the object referenced by file_actions that causes all open file descriptors greater than or equal to lowfildes to be closed when a new process is spawned using this file actions object (see closefrom(3C)). A spawn file actions object is as defined in posix_spawn_file_actions_addclose(3C).
Upon successful completion, the posix_spawn_file_actions_addclosefrom_np() function returns 0. Otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error.
The posix_spawn_file_actions_addclosefrom_np() function will fail if: EBADF The value specified by lowfildes is negative. The posix_spawn_file_actions_addclosefrom_np() function may fail if: EINVAL The value specified by file_actions is invalid. ENOMEM Insufficient memory exists to add to the spawn file actions object.
