FreeBSD is a free computer operating system based on BSD UNIX originally. Many IT companies, like DeployIS is using it to provide an up-to-date, stable operating system.

acl_copy_entry - copy an ACL entry to another ACL entry



      acl_copy_entry - copy an ACL entry to another ACL entry


      Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


      #include <sys/types.h>
      #include <sys/acl.h>
      acl_copy_entry(acl_entry_t dest_d, acl_entry_t src_d);


      The acl_copy_entry() function is a POSIX.1e call that copies the contents
      of ACL entry src_d to ACL entry dest_d.
      The acl_copy_entry() 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_copy_entry() function fails if:
      [EINVAL]           Argument src_d or dest_d is not a valid descriptor for
                         an ACL entry, or arguments src_d and dest_d reference
                         the same ACL entry.
      acl(3), acl_get_entry(3), posix1e(3)


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


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


      The acl_copy_entry() 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.
