ACL_DELETE_ENTRY(3) BSD Library Functions Manual ACL_DELETE_ENTRY(3)NAME
acl_delete_entry, acl_delete_entry_np, — delete an ACL entry from an ACL
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
acl_delete_entry(acl_t acl, acl_entry_t entry_d);
acl_delete_entry_np(acl_t acl, int index);
The acl_delete_entry() function is a POSIX.1e call that removes the ACL
entry entry_d from ACL acl. The acl_delete_entry_np() function is a non-
portable version that removes the ACL entry at position index from ACL
acl. Positions are numbered starting from zero, i.e. calling
acl_delete_entry_np() with index argument equal to zero will remove the
first ACL entry.
The acl_delete_entry() function returns the value 0 if successful; other‐
wise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to
indicate the error.
The acl_delete_entry() function fails if:
[EINVAL] Argument acl does not point to a valid ACL. Argument
entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry in
acl. Argument index is out of bounds.
