NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     sat_intrp_pathname	- Portable interface to	interpret sat_pathname

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <sat.h>

     int sat_intrp_pathname (char **buf, struct	sat_pathname *pn, char
	  **reqname, char **actname, mac_label **label,	int file_major,	int

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     sat_intrp_pathname	takes a	pointer	to a buffer (buf) containing the disk
     image of a	sat_pathname structure.	 It unpacks the	variable length
     portions of the struct from buf and returns them in the specified
     arguments.	 A pointer to the data following the pathname information is
     returned in buf.

     The sat_pathname structure	includes the following fields:

	  ino_t	  sat_inode;	   /* inode number of file */
	  dev_t	  sat_device;	   /* device no. of mounted file system	*/
	  uid_t	  sat_fileown;	   /* file owner */
	  gid_t	  sat_filegrp;	   /* file group */
	  mode_t  sat_filemode;	   /* file mode, including file	type */

     Additional	data is	appended to the	struct in the disk format.  This
     informtaion is returned in	the arguments as follows:

     reqname	    The	pathname that the system call specified

     actname	    The	pathname that the the system actually looked up,
		    including crossed mount points, symbolic links, and
		    multi-level	directories.

     label	    The	security label of the file.  It	is preferred, but not
		    required, to only specify this field if sat_mac_enabled is
		    set	in the file header.

     If	any of these fields are	NULL, the related information will not be
     returned.	If these fields	are non-null (i.e. they	represent the address
     of	a suitable pointer), sufficient	storage	will be	allocated to hold the
     values.  These fields should be freed (see	free(3)) when they are no
     longer needed.

     The file label is only available if sat_mac_enabled is set	in the file
     header, otherwise this field will be NULL.	 To avoid possible problems if
     trailing data happens to resemble a mac_label, do not ask for the file
     label unless sat_mac_enabled is set in the	file header.

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

     sat_read_header_info returns 0 on success or -1 if	the sat_pathname
     struct is not valid.  In this case, an error message is displayed on
