NAME

     acl_clear_perms — clear all permissions from an ACL permission set

LIBRARY

SYNOPSIS

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

     int
     acl_clear_perms(acl_permset_t permset_d);

DESCRIPTION

     The acl_clear_perms() function clears all permissions from the permission set referred to by
     the argument permset_d.

     Any existing descriptors that refer to permset_d shall continue to refer to that permission
     set.

RETURN VALUE

     The acl_clear_perms() 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

     If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_clear_perms() function returns -1 and sets
     errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]           The argument permset_d is not a valid descriptor for a permission set
                        within an ACL entry.
