ACL_SET_PERMSET(3)		   BSD Library Functions Manual 	       ACL_SET_PERMSET(3)

NAME
     acl_set_permset -- set the permission set in an ACL entry

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

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

     int
     acl_set_permset(acl_entry_t entry_d, acl_permset_t permset_d);

DESCRIPTION
     The acl_set_permset() function sets the permission set of the ACL entry indicated by the
     argument entry_d to the permissions contained in the argument permset_d.

     Any ACL entry descriptors that refer to the entry containing the permission set referred to
     by permset_d shall continue to refer to those entries. Any ACL entry descriptors that refer
     to the entry referred to by entry_d shall continue to refer to that entry.

RETURN VALUE
     The acl_set_permset() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise the value -1 is
     returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.

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

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

			The argument permset_d is not a valid descriptor for a permission set
			within an ACL entry.

			The argument permset_d contains values which are not valid acl_permset_t
			values.

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