ACL_DUP(3) BSD Library Functions Manual ACL_DUP(3)
acl_dup -- duplicate an ACL
Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).
The acl_dup() function returns a pointer to a copy of the ACL pointed to by acl.
This function may cause memory to be allocated. The caller should free any releasable mem-
ory, when the new ACL is no longer required, by calling acl_free(3) with the (void*)acl_t
returned by acl_dup() as an argument.
Upon successful completion, this function returns a pointer to the working storage. Other-
wise, a value of (acl_t)NULL is returned, and errno is set to indicate the error.
If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_dup() function returns a value of
(acl_t)NULL and sets errno to the corresponding value:
[EINVAL] The argument acl is not a valid pointer to an ACL.
[ENOMEM] The acl_t to be returned requires more memory than is allowed by the
hardware or system-imposed memory management constraints.
