attropen(3C)		 Standard C Library Functions		  attropen(3C)

NAME
       attropen	- open a file

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<sys/types.h>
       #include	<sys/stat.h>
       #include	<fcntl.h>

       int  attropen(const  char  *path,  const	 char *attrpath, int oflag, /*
       mode_t mode */...);

DESCRIPTION
       The attropen() function is similar to the open(2) function except  that
       it  takes a second path argument, attrpath, that	identifies an extended
       attribute file associated with the first	path argument.	This  function
       returns	a  file	 descriptor for	the extended attribute rather than the
       file named by the initial argument.

       The O_XATTR flag	is set by default for attropen() and the attrpath  ar-
       gument  is  always interpreted as a reference to	an extended attribute.
       Extended	attributes must	be referenced with a relative path;  providing
       an absolute path	results	in a normal file reference.

RETURN VALUES
       Refer to	open(2).

ERRORS
       Refer to	open(2).
