ACL_GET_QUALIFIER(3)		   BSD Library Functions Manual 	     ACL_GET_QUALIFIER(3)

NAME
     acl_get_qualifier -- retrieve the qualifier from an ACL entry

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

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

     void *
     acl_get_qualifier(acl_entry_t entry_d);

DESCRIPTION
     The acl_get_qualifier() function retrieves the qualifier from the ACL entry indicated by the
     argument entry_d into working storage and returns a pointer to that storage.

     If the value of the tag type in the ACL entry referred to by entry_d is ACL_USER, then the
     value returned by acl_get_qualifier() is a pointer to type uid_t.	If the value of the tag
     type in the ACL entry referred to by entry_d is ACL_GROUP, then the value returned by
     acl_get_qualifier() is a pointer to type gid_t.  If the tag type in the ACL entry referred
     to by entry_d is a tag type for which a qualifier is not supported, acl_get_qualifier()
     returns a value of (void *)NULL and the function fails. Subsequent operations using the
     returned pointer operate on an independent copy of the qualifier in working storage, and
     will not change the qualifier of the ACL entry.

     This function may cause memory to be allocated. The caller should free any releasable mem-
     ory, when the new qualifier is no longer required, by calling acl_free() with the void *
     value returned by acl_get_qualifier() as an argument.

     The argument entry_d and any other ACL entry descriptors that refer to entries within the
     ACL containing the entry referred to by entry_d continue to refer to those entries. The
     order of all existing entries in the ACL containing the entry referred to by entry_d remains
     unchanged.

RETURN VALUE
     Upon successful completion, the function returns a pointer to the tag qualifier that was
     retrieved into ACL working storage. Otherwise, a value of (void *)NULL is returned and errno
     is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_get_qualifier() function returns (void
     *)NULL and sets errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]		The argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry.

			The value of the tag type in the ACL entry referenced by the argument
			entry_d is neither ACL_USER nor ACL_GROUP.

     [ENOMEM]		The value to be returned requires more memory than is allowed by the
			hardware or system-imposed memory management constraints.

STANDARDS
     IEEE Std 1003.1e draft 17 ("POSIX.1e", abandoned)
