CAPNG_NAME_TO_CAPABILITY(3)	 Libcap-ng API	   CAPNG_NAME_TO_CAPABILITY(3)

NAME
       capng_name_to_capability - convert capability text to integer

SYNOPSIS
       #include <cap-ng.h>

       int capng_name_to_capability(const char *name);

DESCRIPTION
       capng_name_to_capability	 will take the string being passed and look it
       up to see what its integer value would be. The string  being  input  is
       the  same  name as the define in linux/capabiliy.h with the CAP_ prefix
       removed. The string case does not matter. The integer that is output is
       the  same as the define would be from linux/capabiliy.h. This is useful
       for taking string input and converting to something that	 can  be  used
       with capng_update.

RETURN VALUE
       This returns a negative number on failure and the correct define otherÔÇÉ
       wise.
