ACL_COPY_ENTRY(3)        BSD Library Functions Manual        ACL_COPY_ENTRY(3)

     acl_copy_entry -- copy an ACL entry to another ACL entry

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <sys/acl.h>

     acl_copy_entry(acl_entry_t dest_d, acl_entry_t src_d);

     The acl_copy_entry() function is a POSIX.1e call that copies the contents of ACL entry src_d to ACL
     entry dest_d.

     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.

     The acl_copy_entry() function fails if:

     [EINVAL]           Argument src_d or dest_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry, or arguments
                        src_d and dest_d reference the same ACL entry.

     acl(3), acl_get_entry(3), posix1e(3)

     POSIX.1e is described in IEEE POSIX.1e draft 17.
