       These  functions work on a capability state held in working storage.  A
       cap_t holds information about the capabilities in  each	of  the	 three
       sets,  Permitted, Inheritable, and Effective.  Each capability in a set
       may be clear (disabled, 0) or set (enabled, 1).

       These functions work with the following data types:

       cap_value_t	 identifies a capability, such as CAP_CHOWN.

       cap_flag_t	 identifies one of the three flags associated  with  a
			 capability  (i.e.,  it	 identifies  one  of the three
			 capability sets).  Valid values  for  this  type  are

       cap_flag_value_t	 identifies  the  setting  of  a particular capability
			 flag (i.e, the value  of  a  capability  in  a	 set).
			 Valid	values	for  this  type	 are  CAP_CLEAR(0)  or

       The return value is  generally  specific	 to  the  individual  function
       called.	On failure, errno is set appropriately.

       These  functions are as per the withdrawn POSIX.1e draft specification.
       The  following  functions  are  Linux   extensions:   cap_clear_flag(),
       cap_compare(), cap_from_name(), cap_to_name(), and cap_compare().

       cap_clear(3),   cap_copy_ext(3),	  cap_from_text(3),   cap_get_file(3),
       cap_get_proc(3), cap_init(3), capabilities(7), getpid(2) capsh(1)
