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_delete_entry - delete an ACL entry from an ACL



      acl_delete_entry - delete an ACL entry from an ACL


      Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


      #include <sys/types.h>
      #include <sys/acl.h>
      acl_delete_entry(acl_t acl, acl_entry_t entry_d);


      The acl_delete_entry() function is a POSIX.1e call that removes the ACL
      entry entry_d from ACL acl.
      The acl_delete_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_delete_entry() function fails if:
      [EINVAL]           Argument acl does not point to a valid ACL.  Argument
                         entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry in
      acl(3), acl_copy_entry(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_delete_entry()
      function was added in FreeBSD 5.0.


      The acl_delete_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.
