NAME

     acl_free — release memory allocated to an ACL data object

LIBRARY

     Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).

SYNOPSIS

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

     int
     acl_free(void *obj_p);

DESCRIPTION

     The acl_free() function frees any releasable memory currently allocated by to the ACL data
     object identified by obj_p.  The argument obj_p may identify an ACL, an ACL entry qualifier,
     or a pointer to a string allocated by the acl_to_text() function.

RETURN VALUE

     The acl_free() 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_free() function returns the value -1 and
     and sets errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]           The value of the argument obj_p is invalid.

STANDARDS

     IEEE Std 1003.1e draft 17 (“POSIX.1e”, abandoned)
