NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     acl_add_perm -- add permissions to a permission set

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

     acl_add_perm(acl_permset_t permset_d, acl_perm_t perm);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The acl_add_perm() function is a POSIX.1e call that adds the permission
     contained in perm to the permission set permset_d.

     already exist in the permission set.

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

     The acl_add_perm() 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    [Toc]    [Back]

     The acl_add_perm() function fails if:

     [EINVAL]		Argument permset_d is not a valid descriptor for a
			permission set within an ACL entry.  Argument perm
			does not contain a valid acl_perm_t value.
