NAME
attropen - open a file SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/stat.h> #include <fcntl.h> int attropen(const char *path, const char *attrpath, int oflag, /* mode_t mode */...); DESCRIPTION
The attropen() function is similar to the open(2) function except that it takes a second path argument, attrpath, that identifies an extended attribute file associated with the first path argument. This function returns a file descriptor for the extended attribute rather than the file named by the initial argument. The O_XATTR flag is set by default for attropen() and the attrpath argument is always interpreted as a reference to an extended attribute. Extended attributes must be referenced with a relative path; providing an absolute path results in a normal file reference. RETURN VALUES
