ACL_STRIP_NP(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual	       ACL_STRIP_NP(3)

     acl_is_trivial_np — determine whether ACL is trivial

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

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

     acl_is_trivial_np(const acl_t aclp, int *trivialp);

     The acl_is_trivial() function determines whether the ACL pointed to by
     the argument acl is trivial.  Upon successful completion, the location
     referred to by the argument trivialp will be set to 1, if the ACL aclp
     points to is trivial, or 0 if it's not.

     ACL is trivial if it can be fully expressed as a file mode without loos‐
     ing any access rules.  For POSIX.1e ACLs, ACL is trivial if it has the
     three required entries, one for owner, one for owning group, and one for
     other.  For NFSv4 ACLs, ACL is trivial if it has the "canonical six"
     entries.  Files that have non-trivial ACL have a plus sign appended after
     mode bits in "ls -l" output.

     The acl_get_tag_type() 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.

     acl(3), posix1e(3)

     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

     POSIX.1e support was introduced in FreeBSD 4.0.  The acl_is_trivial_np()
     function was added in FreeBSD 8.0.
