DESCRIPTION

RETURN VALUE

The acl_copy_entry() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS

If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_copy_entry() function returns -1 and sets errno to the corresponding value: [EINVAL] The argument src_d or dest_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry. The arguments src_d and dest_d reference the same ACL entry.
