ACL_DELETE_ENTRY(3)					   BSD Library Functions Manual 				       ACL_DELETE_ENTRY(3)

NAME
acl_delete_entry -- delete an ACL entry LIBRARY
Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl). SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/acl.h> int acl_delete_entry(acl_t acl, acl_entry_t entry_d); DESCRIPTION
The acl_delete_entry() function removes the ACL entry indicated by the entry_d descriptor from the ACL pointed to by acl. Any existing ACL entry descriptors that refer to entries in acl other than that referred to by entry_d continue to refer to the same entries. The argument entry_d and any other ACL entry descriptors that refer to the same ACL entry are undefined after this function completes. Any existing ACL pointers that refer to the ACL referred to by acl continue to refer to the ACL. RETURN VALUE
The acl_delete_entry() 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_delete_entry() function returns -1 and sets errno to the corresponding value: [EINVAL] The argument acl_p is not a valid pointer to an ACL. The argument entry_d is not a valid pointer to an ACL entry. STANDARDS

NAME
acl_delete_entry, acl_delete_entry_np -- delete an ACL entry from an ACL LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/acl.h> int acl_delete_entry(acl_t acl, acl_entry_t entry_d); int acl_delete_entry_np(acl_t acl, int index); DESCRIPTION
The acl_delete_entry() function is a POSIX.1e call that removes the ACL entry entry_d from ACL acl. The acl_delete_entry_np() function is a non-portable version that removes the ACL entry at position index from ACL acl. Positions are numbered starting from zero, i.e. calling acl_delete_entry_np() with index argument equal to zero will remove the first ACL entry. RETURN VALUES
The acl_delete_entry() 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
The acl_delete_entry() function fails if: [EINVAL] Argument acl does not point to a valid ACL. Argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry in acl. Argument index is out of bounds. SEE ALSO
acl(3), acl_copy_entry(3), acl_get_entry(3), posix1e(3) STANDARDS
POSIX.1e is described in IEEE POSIX.1e draft 17. HISTORY
POSIX.1e support was introduced in FreeBSD 4.0. The acl_delete_entry() function was added in FreeBSD 5.0. AUTHORS
The acl_delete_entry() function was written by Chris D. Faulhaber <jedgar@fxp.org>. BSD

6. HP-UX

When did HP-UX have support for ACL?

Hello, I try to find what year HP-UX got support for ACL (Access Control List)? I know that HP-UX was the first Unix with ACL support, but it is very hard to find the information on when that occured. So anyone here know when that did happen? Any answers are appreciated, /eXpander (1 Reply)
