ACL_SET_ENTRY_TYPE_NP(3)   Library Functions Manual   ACL_SET_ENTRY_TYPE_NP(3)

NAME
     acl_set_entry_type_np - set NFSv4 ACL entry type

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

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

     int
     acl_set_entry_type_np(acl_entry_t entry_d, acl_entry_type_t entry_type);

DESCRIPTION
     The acl_set_entry_type_np() function is a non-portable call that sets the
     type of the NFSv4 ACL entry entry_d to the value referred to by
     entry_type.

     Valid values are:

        ACL_ENTRY_TYPE_ALLOW    allow type entry
        ACL_ENTRY_TYPE_DENY     deny type entry

     This call brands the ACL as NFSv4.

RETURN VALUES
     The acl_set_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_set_entry_type_np() function fails if:

     [EINVAL]           Argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL
                        entry.  The value pointed to by entry_type is not
                        valid.  ACL is already branded as POSIX.1e.

     [ENOMEM]           The value to be returned requires more memory than is
                        allowed by the hardware or system-imposed memory
                        management constraints.

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

HISTORY
     POSIX.1e support was introduced in FreeBSD 4.0.  The
     acl_get_entry_type_np() function was added in FreeBSD 8.0.
