acl_dup(3)               BSD Library Functions Manual               acl_dup(3)


NAME

     acl_dup -- duplicate an ACL


LIBRARY

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


SYNOPSIS

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

     acl_t
     acl_dup(acl_t acl);


DESCRIPTION

     The acl_dup() function returns a pointer to a copy of the ACL pointed to
     by the argument acl.

     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 as an argument.

     Any existing ACL pointers that refer to the ACL referred to by acl shall
     continue to refer to the ACL.


RETURN VALUES

     Upon successful completion, this function shall return a pointer to the
     duplicate ACL.  Otherwise, a value of (acl_t)NULL shall be returned, and
     errno shall be set to indicate the error.


ERRORS

     If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_init() function shall
     return a value of (acl_t)NULL and set errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]           Argument acl does not point to a valid ACL.

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