ACL_DELETE_ENTRY(3) BSD Library Functions Manual ACL_DELETE_ENTRY(3)NAMEacl_delete_entry — delete an ACL entry
Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).
acl_delete_entry(acl_t acl, acl_entry_t entry_d);
The acl_delete_entry() function removes the ACL entry indicated by the
entry_d descriptor from the ACL pointed to by acl. Any existing ACL
entry descriptors that refer to entries in acl other than that referred
to by entry_d continue to refer to the same entries. The argument entry_d
and any other ACL entry descriptors that refer to the same ACL entry are
undefined after this function completes. Any existing ACL pointers that
refer to the ACL referred to by acl continue to refer to the ACL.
The acl_delete_entry() function returns the value 0 if successful; other‐
wise 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_entry() function
returns -1 and sets errno to the corresponding value:
[EINVAL] The argument acl_p is not a valid pointer to an ACL.
The argument entry_d is not a valid pointer to an ACL
