NAME

     acl_get_fd — get an ACL by file descriptor

LIBRARY

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

SYNOPSIS

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

     acl_t
     acl_get_fd(int fd);

DESCRIPTION

     The acl_get_fd() function retrieves the access ACL associated with the file referred to by
     fd.  The ACL is placed into working storage and acl_get_fd() returns a pointer to that
     storage.

     In order to read an ACL from an object, a process must have read access to the object's
     attributes.

     This function may cause memory to be allocated.  The caller should free any releasable
     memory, when the new ACL is no longer required, by calling acl_free(3) with the (void*)acl_t
     returned by acl_get_fd() as an argument.

RETURN VALUE

     On success, this function shall return a pointer to the working storage.  On error, a value
     of (acl_t)NULL shall be returned, and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS

     If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_get_fd() function returns a value of
     (acl_t)NULL and sets errno to the corresponding value:

     [EBADF]            The fd argument is not a valid file descriptor.

     [ENOMEM]           The ACL working storage requires more memory than is allowed by the
                        hardware or system-imposed memory management constraints.

     [ENOTSUP]          The file system on which the file identified by fd is located does not
                        support ACLs, or ACLs are disabled.

STANDARDS

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