GETUMASK(3)			    Linux Programmer's Manual			      GETUMASK(3)

NAME
       getumask - get file creation mask

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

       mode_t getumask(void);

DESCRIPTION
       This function returns the current file creation mask.  It is equivalent to
	      mode_t getumask(void) {
		   mode_t mask = umask(0);
		   umask(mask);
		   return mask;
	      }
       except  that  it  is documented to be thread-safe (that is, shares a lock with the umask()
       library call).

NOTES
       This function is documented but not implemented yet in glibc 2.2.5.

CONFORMING TO
       This is a vapourware GNU extension.
