NAME
     acl_get_entry_type_np - retrieve the ACL type from an NFSv4 ACL entry

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <sys/acl.h>

     int
     acl_get_entry_type_np(acl_entry_t entry_d,
         acl_entry_type_t *entry_type_p);

DESCRIPTION
     The acl_get_entry_type_np() function is a non-portable call that returns
     the ACL type for the NFSv4 ACL entry entry_d.  Upon successful
     completion, the location referred to by the argument entry_type_p will be
     set to the ACL type of the ACL entry entry_d.

RETURN VALUES
     The acl_get_entry_type_np() function returns the value 0 if successful;
     otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set
     to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     The acl_get_entry_type_np() function fails if:

     [EINVAL]           Argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an
                        NFSv4 ACL entry;
