SYNOPSIS


.In sys/types.h
.In sys/acl.h int acl_delete_def_file const char *path_p int acl_delete_def_link_np const char *path_p int acl_delete_fd_np int filedes acl_type_t type int acl_delete_file_np const char *path_p acl_type_t type int acl_delete_link_np const char *path_p acl_type_t type

DESCRIPTION

The acl_delete_def_file, acl_delete_def_link_np, acl_delete_fd_np, acl_delete_file_np, and acl_delete_link_np each allow the deletion of an ACL from a file. The acl_delete_def_file function is a POSIX.1e call that deletes the default ACL from a file (normally a directory) by name; the remainder of the calls are non-portable extensions that permit the deletion of arbitrary ACL types from a file/directory either by path name or file descriptor. The _file variations follow a symlink if it occurs in the last segment of the path name; the _link variations operate on the symlink itself.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES


.Fx Ns ’s support for POSIX.1e interfaces and features is still under development at this time.

RETURN VALUES


.Rv -std

ERRORS

If any of the following conditions occur, these functions shall return -1 and set errno to the corresponding value:
[EACCES]
  Search permission is denied for a component of the path prefix, or the object exists and the process does not have appropriate access rights.
[EBADF]
  The fd argument is not a valid file descriptor.
[EINVAL]
  The ACL type passed is invalid for this file object.
[ENAMETOOLONG]
  A component of a pathname exceeded 255 characters, or an entire path name exceeded 1023 characters.
[ENOENT]
  The named object does not exist, or the path_p argument points to an empty string.
[ENOMEM]
  Insufficient memory available to fulfill request.
[ENOTDIR]
  A component of the path prefix is not a directory.

Argument path_p must be a directory, and is not.

[EOPNOTSUPP]
  The file system does not support ACL deletion.
[EPERM]
  The process does not have appropriate privilege to perform the operation to delete an ACL.
[EROFS]
  The file system is read-only.

STANDARDS

POSIX.1e is described in IEEE POSIX.1e draft 17. Discussion of the draft continues on the cross-platform POSIX.1e implementation mailing list. To join this list, see the
.Fx POSIX.1e implementation page for more information.

HISTORY

POSIX.1e support was introduced in
.Fx 4.0 , and development continues.
