ACL_DELETE_DEF_FILE(3) BSD Library Functions Manual ACL_DELETE_DEF_FILE(3)NAMEacl_delete_def_file — delete a default ACL by filename
Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).
acl_delete_def_file(const char *path_p);
The acl_delete_def_file() function deletes a default ACL from the direc‐
tory whose pathname is pointed to by the argument path_p.
The effective user ID of the process must match the owner of the file or
directory or the process must have the CAP_FOWNER capability for the
request to succeed.
If the argument path_p is not a directory, then the function fails. It is
no error if the directory whose pathname is pointed to by the argument
path_p does not have a default ACL.
The acl_delete_def_file() function returns the value 0 if successful;
otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set
to indicate the error.
If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_delete_def_file() func‐
tion returns the value -1 and and sets errno to the corresponding value:
[EINVAL] The file referred to by path_p is not a directory.
[ENOTSUP] The file system on which the file identified by path_p
is located does not support ACLs, or ACLs are dis‐
[EPERM] The process does not have appropriate privilege to
perform the operation to delete the default ACL.
[EROFS] This function requires modification of a file system
which is currently read-only.
