CAPNG_APPLY(3) Libcap-ng API CAPNG_APPLY(3)NAMEcapng_apply - apply the stored capabilities settings
int capng_apply(capng_select_t set);
DESCRIPTIONcapng_apply will transfer the specified internal posix capabilities
settings to the kernel. The options are CAPNG_SELECT_CAPS for the tra‐
ditional capabilities, CAPNG_SELECT_BOUNDS for the bounding set, or
CAPNG_SELECT_BOTH if transferring both is desired.
This returns 0 on success and -1 on failure.
If you are doing multi-threaded programming, calling this function will
only set capabilities on the calling thread. All other threads are
unaffected. If you want to set overall capabilities for a multi-
threaded process, you will need to do that before creating any threads.
See the capset syscall for more information on this topic.
