acl_clear_perms - clear permissions from a permission set



      acl_clear_perms - clear permissions from a permission set


      Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


      #include <sys/types.h>
      #include <sys/acl.h>
      acl_clear_perms(acl_permset_t permset_d);


      The acl_clear_perms() function is a POSIX.1e call that clears all permis‐
      sions from permissions set permset_d.
      The acl_clear_perms() function returns the value 0 if successful; other‐
      wise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to
      indicate the error.


      The acl_clear_perms() function fails if:
      [EINVAL]           Argument permset_d is not a valid descriptor for a
                         permission set.
      acl(3), acl_add_perm(3), acl_delete_perm(3), acl_get_permset(3),
      acl_set_permset(3), posix1e(3)


      POSIX.1e is described in IEEE POSIX.1e draft 17.


      POSIX.1e support was introduced in FreeBSD 4.0.  The acl_clear_perms()
      function was added in FreeBSD 5.0.


      The acl_clear_perms() function was written by Chris D. Faulhaber


Based on BSD UNIX
FreeBSD is an advanced operating system for x86 compatible (including Pentium and Athlon), amd64 compatible (including Opteron, Athlon64, and EM64T), UltraSPARC, IA-64, PC-98 and ARM architectures. It is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It is developed and maintained by a large team of individuals. Additional platforms are in various stages of development.
