NAME

explain_acl_set_fd - explain acl_set_fd(3) errors

SYNOPSIS

#include <libexplain/acl_set_fd.h> const char *explain_acl_set_fd(int fildes, acl_t acl); const char *explain_errno_acl_set_fd(int errnum, int fildes, acl_t acl); void explain_message_acl_set_fd(char *message, int message_size, int fildes, acl_t acl); void explain_message_errno_acl_set_fd(char *message, int message_size, int errnum, int fildes, acl_t acl);

DESCRIPTION

These functions may be used to obtain explanations for errors returned by the acl_set_fd(3) system call. explain_acl_set_fd const char *explain_acl_set_fd(int fildes, acl_t acl); The explain_acl_set_fd function is used to obtain an explanation of an error returned by the acl_set_fd(3) system call. The least the message will contain is the value of str‐ error(errno), but usually it will do much better, and indicate the underlying cause in more detail. The errno global variable will be used to obtain the error value to be decoded. fildes The original fildes, exactly as passed to the acl_set_fd(3) system call. acl The original acl, exactly as passed to the acl_set_fd(3) system call. Returns: The message explaining the error. This message buffer is shared by all libexplain functions which do not supply a buffer in their argument list. This will be over‐ written by the next call to any libexplain function which shares this buffer, including other threads. Note: This function is not thread safe, because it shares a return buffer across all threads, and many other functions in this library. Example: This function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following exam‐ ple: if (acl_set_fd(fildes, acl) < 0) { fprintf(stderr, "%s\n", explain_acl_set_fd(fildes, acl)); exit(EXIT_FAILURE); } The above code example is available pre-packaged as the explain_acl_set_fd_or_die(3) func‐ tion. explain_errno_acl_set_fd const char *explain_errno_acl_set_fd(int errnum, int fildes, acl_t acl); The explain_errno_acl_set_fd function is used to obtain an explanation of an error returned by the acl_set_fd(3) system call. The least the message will contain is the value of strerror(errno), but usually it will do much better, and indicate the underlying cause in more detail. errnum The error value to be decoded, usually obtained from the errno global variable just before this function is called. This is necessary if you need to call any code between the system call to be explained and this function, because many libc functions will alter the value of errno. fildes The original fildes, exactly as passed to the acl_set_fd(3) system call. acl The original acl, exactly as passed to the acl_set_fd(3) system call. Returns: The message explaining the error. This message buffer is shared by all libexplain functions which do not supply a buffer in their argument list. This will be over‐ written by the next call to any libexplain function which shares this buffer, including other threads. Note: This function is not thread safe, because it shares a return buffer across all threads, and many other functions in this library. Example: This function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following exam‐ ple: if (acl_set_fd(fildes, acl) < 0) { int err = errno; fprintf(stderr, "%s\n", explain_errno_acl_set_fd(err, fildes, acl)); exit(EXIT_FAILURE); } The above code example is available pre-packaged as the explain_acl_set_fd_or_die(3) func‐ tion. explain_message_acl_set_fd void explain_message_acl_set_fd(char *message, int message_size, int fildes, acl_t acl); The explain_message_acl_set_fd function is used to obtain an explanation of an error returned by the acl_set_fd(3) system call. The least the message will contain is the value of strerror(errno), but usually it will do much better, and indicate the underlying cause in more detail. The errno global variable will be used to obtain the error value to be decoded. message The location in which to store the returned message. If a suitable message return buffer is supplied, this function is thread safe. message_size The size in bytes of the location in which to store the returned message. fildes The original fildes, exactly as passed to the acl_set_fd(3) system call. acl The original acl, exactly as passed to the acl_set_fd(3) system call. Example: This function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following exam‐ ple: if (acl_set_fd(fildes, acl) < 0) { char message[3000]; explain_message_acl_set_fd(message, sizeof(message), fildes, acl); fprintf(stderr, "%s\n", message); exit(EXIT_FAILURE); } The above code example is available pre-packaged as the explain_acl_set_fd_or_die(3) func‐ tion. explain_message_errno_acl_set_fd void explain_message_errno_acl_set_fd(char *message, int message_size, int errnum, int fildes, acl_t acl); The explain_message_errno_acl_set_fd function is used to obtain an explanation of an error returned by the acl_set_fd(3) system call. The least the message will contain is the value of strerror(errno), but usually it will do much better, and indicate the underlying cause in more detail. message The location in which to store the returned message.
