NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     acl_calc_mask -- calculate and set ACL mask permissions

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

     acl_calc_mask(acl_t *acl_p);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The acl_calc_mask() function is a POSIX.1e call that calculates and set
     the permissions associated with the ACL_MASK ACL entry of the ACL
     referred to by acl_p.

     The value of new permissions are the union of the permissions granted by
     the ACL_GROUP, ACL_GROUP_OBJ, ACL_USER tag types which match processes in
     the file group class contained in the ACL referred to by acl_p.

     If the ACL referred to by acl_p already contains an ACL_MASK entry, its
     permissions shall be overwritten; if it does not contain an ACL_MASK
     entry, one shall be added.

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

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