ACL_GET_ENTRY(3)       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual       ACL_GET_ENTRY(3)

NAME
     acl_get_entry -- retrieve an ACL entry from an ACL

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

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

     int
     acl_get_entry(acl_t acl, int entry_id, acl_entry_t *entry_p);

DESCRIPTION
     The acl_get_entry() function is a POSIX.1e call that retrieves a descrip-
     tor for an ACL entry specified by the argument entry_d within the ACL
     indicated by the argument acl.

     If the value of entry_id is ACL_FIRST_ENTRY, then the function will
     return in entry_p a descriptor for the first ACL entry within acl.  If a
     call is made to acl_get_entry() with entry_id set to ACL_NEXT_ENTRY when
     there has not been either an initial successful call to acl_get_entry(),
     or a previous successful call to acl_create_entry(), acl_delete_entry(),
     acl_dup(), acl_from_text(), acl_get_fd(), acl_get_file(), acl_set_fd(),
     acl_set_file(), or acl_valid(), then the result is unspecified.

RETURN VALUES
     If the acl_get_entry() function successfuly obtains an ACL entry, a value
     of 1 is returned.  If the ACL has no ACL entries, the acl_get_entry()
     returns a value of 0.  If the value of entry_id is ACL_NEXT_ENTRY and the
     last ACL entry in the ACL has already been returned by a previous call to
     acl_get_entry(), a value of 0 will be returned until a successful call
     with entry_id of ACL_FIRST_ENTRY is made.  Otherwise, a value of -1 will
     be returned and the global variable errno will be set to indicate the
     error.

ERRORS
     The acl_get_entry() fails if:

     [EINVAL]           Argument acl does not point to a valid ACL.  Argument
                        entry_id is neither ACL_FIRST_ENTRY nor
                        ACL_NEXT_ENTRY.

STANDARDS
     POSIX.1e is described in IEEE POSIX.1e draft 17.

HISTORY
     POSIX.1e support was introduced in FreeBSD 4.0.  The acl_get_entry()
     function was added in FreeBSD 5.0.

AUTHORS
     The acl_get_entry() function was written by Chris D. Faulhaber
