ACL_DELETE(3)	       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual		 ACL_DELETE(3)

NAME
     acl_delete_def_file, acl_delete_def_link_np, acl_delete_fd_np,
     acl_delete_file_np, acl_delete_link_np -- delete an ACL from a file

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

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

     int
     acl_delete_def_file(const char *path_p);

     int
     acl_delete_def_link_np(const char *path_p);

     int
     acl_delete_fd_np(int filedes, acl_type_t type);

     int
     acl_delete_file_np(const char *path_p, acl_type_t type);

     int
     acl_delete_link_np(const char *path_p, acl_type_t type);

DESCRIPTION
     The acl_delete_def_file(),	acl_delete_def_link_np(), acl_delete_fd_np(),
     acl_delete_file_np(), and acl_delete_link_np() each allow the deletion of
     an	ACL from a file.  The acl_delete_def_file() function is	a POSIX.1e
     call that deletes the default ACL from a file (normally a directory) by
     name; the remainder of the	calls are non-portable extensions that permit
     the deletion of arbitrary ACL types from a	file/directory either by path
     name or file descriptor.  The _file() variations follow a symlink if it
     occurs in the last	segment	of the path name; the _link() variations oper-
     ate on the	symlink	itself.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
     FreeBSD's support for POSIX.1e interfaces and features is still under
     development at this time.

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion, the value 0 is	returned; 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, these functions shall return -1
     and set errno to the corresponding	value:

     [EACCES]		Search permission is denied for	a component of the
			path prefix, or	the object exists and the process does
			not have appropriate access rights.

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

     [EINVAL]		The ACL	type passed is invalid for this	file object.

     [ENAMETOOLONG]	A component of a pathname exceeded 255 characters, or
			an entire path name exceeded 1023 characters.

     [ENOENT]		The named object does not exist, or the	path_p argu-
			ment points to an empty	string.

     [ENOMEM]		Insufficient memory available to fulfill request.

     [ENOTDIR]		A component of the path	prefix is not a	directory.

			Argument path_p	must be	a directory, and is not.

     [EOPNOTSUPP]	The file system	does not support ACL deletion.

     [EPERM]		The process does not have appropriate privilege	to
			perform	the operation to delete	an ACL.

     [EROFS]		The file system	is read-only.

STANDARDS
     POSIX.1e is described in IEEE POSIX.1e draft 17.  Discussion of the draft
     continues on the cross-platform POSIX.1e implementation mailing list.  To
     join this list, see the FreeBSD POSIX.1e implementation page for more
     information.

HISTORY
     POSIX.1e support was introduced in	FreeBSD	4.0, and development contin-
     ues.
