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

     acl_delete_entry -- delete an ACL entry

     Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).

     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <sys/acl.h>

     acl_delete_entry(acl_t acl, acl_entry_t entry_d);

     The acl_delete_entry() function removes the ACL entry indicated by the entry_d descriptor
     from the ACL pointed to by acl.  Any existing ACL entry descriptors that refer to entries in
     acl other than that referred to by entry_d continue to refer to the same entries. The argu-
     ment entry_d and any other ACL entry descriptors that refer to the same ACL entry are unde-
     fined after this function completes. Any existing ACL pointers that refer to the ACL
     referred to by acl continue to refer to the ACL.

     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.

     If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_delete_entry() function returns -1 and
     sets errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]		The argument acl_p is not a valid pointer to an ACL.

			The argument entry_d is not a valid pointer to an ACL entry.
