Description:

The acl_get_qualifier() function gets the qualifier from an ACL entry and returns a pointer to a copy of it. The data type of the pointer depends on the type of the entry:

Entry type Pointer type
ACL_USER uid_t *
ACL_GROUP gid_t *
Other types (void *)NULL, and the function fails

The uid_t and gid_t data types are defined in <sys/types.h>.

When you're finished with the copy of the qualifier, use acl_free() to release it.

Returns:

A pointer to a copy of the qualifier, or NULL if an error occurred ( errno is set).

Errors:

EINVAL
The entry_d argument isn't a valid descriptor for an ACL entry, or the value of the tag type in the entry isn't ACL_USER or ACL_GROUP.
ENOMEM
There wasn't enough memory to create a copy of the qualifier.

Classification:

QNX Neutrino

This function is based on the withdrawn POSIX draft P1003.1e.
