NAME

       context_new,     context_str,     context_free,     context_type_get,    context_type_set,
       context_range_get, context_range_set,context_role_get, context_role_set, context_user_get,
       context_user_set - Routines to manipulate SELinux security contexts

SYNOPSIS

       #include <selinux/context.h>

       context_t context_new(const char * context_str );

       const char * context_str(context_t  con );

       void context_free(context_t  con );

       const char * context_type_get(context_t  con );

       const char * context_range_get(context_t  con );

       const char * context_role_get(context_t  con );

       const char * context_user_get(context_t  con );

       const char * context_type_set(context_t  con , const char*  type);

       const char * context_range_set(context_t  con , const char*  range);

       const char * context_role_set(context_t  con , const char*  role );

       const char * context_user_set(context_t  con , const char*  user );

DESCRIPTION

       These functions allow an application to manipulate the fields of a security context string
       without requiring it to know the format of the string.

       context_new
        Return a new context initialized to a context string

       context_str Return a pointer to the string value of the context_t  Valid  until  the  next
       call to context_str or context_free for the same context_t*

       context_free Free the storage used by a context

       context_type_get,  context_range_get,  context_role_get, context_user_get Get a pointer to
       the string value of a context component

       NOTE: Values returned by the get functions are only valid until the next  call  to  a  set
       function or context_free() for the same context_t structure.

       context_type_set,  context_range_set,  context_role_set,  context_user_set  Set  a context
       component

RETURN VALUE

       On success, zero is returned. On failure, -1 is returned and errno is set appropriately.
