ACL_PERMSET_MASK(3)	 BSD Library Functions Manual	   ACL_PERMSET_MASK(3)

NAME
     acl_permset_mask — Manipulate ACL permissions using bitmasks

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

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

     int
     acl_maximal_permset_mask_np(acl_permset_mask_t * mask_p);

     int
     acl_get_permset_mask_np(acl_entry_t entry_d,
	 acl_permset_mask_t * mask_p);

     int
     acl_set_permset_mask_np(acl_entry_t entry_d, acl_permset_mask_t mask);

DESCRIPTION
     The acl_permset_mask_t functions are a Darwin extension to the POSIX.1e
     ACL standard which allow manipulation of permissions in an acl_entry_t
     using a bitmask of type acl_permset_mask_t rather than a constructed
     acl_permset_t (as done by acl_get_permset(3) and acl_set_permset(3)).

     acl_permset_mask_t values may be constructed using bitwise operations
     over acl_perm_t values.

     acl_maximal_permset_mask_np() sets the value pointed to by mask_p to a
     bitmask of all valid acl_perm_t values.

     acl_get_permset_mask_np() returns via mask_p a bitmask of permissions set
     on the ACL entry entry_d.

     acl_set_permset_mask_np() sets the permissions of ACL entry entry_d to
     match the permission bitmask provided by mask.

RETURN VALUES
     The acl_maximal_permset_mask_np() function returns the value 0 if suc‐
     cessful; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno
     is set to indicate the error.

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

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

ERRORS
     The acl_get_permset_mask_np() function fails if:

     [EINVAL]		Argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL
			entry.

     The acl_set_permset_mask_np() function fails if:

     [EINVAL]		Argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL
			entry.

     [EINVAL]		Argument mask is not a valid bitmask of ACL permis‐
			sions.
