ACL_GET_TAG_TYPE(3)      BSD Library Functions Manual      ACL_GET_TAG_TYPE(3)

     acl_get_tag_type -- retrieve the tag type from an ACL entry

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

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

     acl_get_tag_type(acl_entry_t entry_d, acl_tag_t *tag_type_p);

     The acl_get_tag_type() function is a POSIX.1e call that returns the tag type for the ACL entry entry_d.
     Upon successful completion, the location referred to by the argument tag_type_p will be set to the tag
     type of the ACL entry entry_d.

     The acl_get_tag_type() 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_get_tag_type() function fails if:

     [EINVAL]           Argument entry_d is not a valid descriptor for an ACL entry;

     acl(3), acl_create_entry(3), acl_get_entry(3), acl_get_qualifier(3), acl_init(3), acl_set_qualifier(3),
     acl_set_tag_type(3), posix1e(3)

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