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 int acl_delete_def_file const char *path_p

DESCRIPTION

The 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 acl_delete_def_file function 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 disabled.
[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.
