acl_calc_mask - calculate the file group class mask
Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).
.In sys/acl.h int
acl_calc_mask acl_t *acl_p
acl_calc_maskfunction calculates and sets the permissions associated with the ACL_MASK ACL entry of the ACL referred to by acl_p. The value of the new permissions is the union of the permissions granted by all entries of tag type ACL_GROUP, ACL_GROUP_OBJ, or ACL_USER. If the ACL referred to by acl_p already contains an ACL_MASK entry, its permissions are overwritten; if it does not contain an ACL_MASK entry, one is added.
If the ACL referred to by acl_p does not contain enough space for the new ACL entry, then additional working storage may be allocated. If the working storage cannot be increased in the current location, then it may be relocated and the previous working storage is released and a pointer to the new working storage is returned via acl_p.
The order of existing entries in the ACL is undefined after this function.
Any existing ACL entry descriptors that refer to entries in the ACL continue to refer to those entries. Any existing ACL pointers that refer to the ACL referred to by acl_p continue to refer to the ACL.
.Rv -std acl_calc_mask
If any of the following conditions occur, the
