     acl_get_permset - retrieve permission set from an ACL entry

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

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

     int
     acl_get_permset(acl_entry_t entry_d, acl_permset_t *permset_p);

DESCRIPTION
     The acl_get_permset() function is a POSIX.1e call that returns via
     permset_p a descriptor to the permission set in the ACL entry entry_d.
     Subsequent operations using the returned permission set operate on the
     permission set within the ACL entry.

RETURN VALUES
     The acl_get_permset() 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_permset() function fails if:

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