NAME

acl_delete_def_file - delete a default ACL by filename  

LIBRARY

Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).  

SYNOPSIS

In sys/types.h In sys/acl.h Ft int Fn acl_delete_def_file const char *path_p  

DESCRIPTION

The Fn acl_delete_def_file function deletes a default ACL from the directory 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.  

RETURN VALUE

Rv -std acl_delete_def_file  

ERRORS

If any of the following conditions occur, the Fn acl_delete_def_file function returns the value -1 and and sets errno to the corresponding value:

Bq Er EINVAL
The file referred to by path_p is not a directory.
Bq Er ENOTSUP
The file system on which the file identified by path_p is located does not support ACLs, or ACLs are disabled.
Bq Er EPERM
The process does not have appropriate privilege to perform the operation to delete the default ACL.
Bq Er EROFS
This function requires modification of a file system which is currently read-only.
