ACL_CALC_MASK(3)	 BSD Library Functions Manual	      ACL_CALC_MASK(3)

     acl_calc_mask — calculate the file group class mask

     Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).

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

     acl_calc_mask(acl_t *acl_p);

     The acl_calc_mask() function calculates and sets the permissions associ‐
     ated with the ACL_MASK ACL entry of the ACL referred to by acl_p.	The
     value of the new permissions is the union of the permissions granted by
     all entries of tag type ACL_GROUP, ACL_GROUP_OBJ, or ACL_USER.  If the
     ACL referred to by acl_p already contains an ACL_MASK entry, its permis‐
     sions are overwritten; if it does not contain an ACL_MASK entry, one is

     If the ACL referred to by acl_p does not contain enough space for the new
     ACL entry, then additional working storage may be allocated. If the work‐
     ing storage cannot be increased in the current location, then it may be
     relocated and the previous working storage is released and a pointer to
     the new working storage is returned via acl_p.

     The order of existing entries in the ACL is undefined after this func‐

     Any existing ACL entry descriptors that refer to entries in the ACL con‐
     tinue to refer to those entries. Any existing ACL pointers that refer to
     the ACL referred to by acl_p continue to refer to the ACL.

     The acl_calc_mask() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise
     the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate
     the error.

     If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_calc_mask() function
     returns -1 and sets errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]		The argument acl is not a valid pointer to an ACL.

     [ENOMEM]		The acl_calc_mask() function is unable to allocate the
			memory required for an ACL_MASK ACL entry.
