The sp, src, and dst arguments point to privilege sets. The priv argument
points to a named privilege.

The priv_addset() function adds the named privilege priv to sp.

The priv_allocset() function allocates sufficient memory to contain a
privilege set. The value of the returned privilege set is indeterminate.
The function returns NULL and sets errno when it fails to allocate

The priv_copyset() function copies the set src to dst.

The priv_delset() function removes the named privilege priv from sp.

The priv_emptyset() function clears all privileges from sp.

The priv_basicset() function copies the basic privilege set to sp.

The priv_fillset() function asserts all privileges in sp, including the
privileges not currently defined in the system.

The priv_freeset() function frees the storage allocated by

The priv_intersect() function intersects src with dst and places the
results in dst.

The priv_inverse() function inverts the privilege set given as argument
in place.

The priv_isemptyset() function checks whether the argument is an empty

The priv_isequalset() function checks whether the privilege set src is
equal to dst.

The priv_isfullset() function checks whether the argument is a full set.
A full set is a set with all bits set, regardless of whether the
privilege is currently defined in the system.

The priv_ismember() function checks whether the named privilege priv is a
member of sp.

The priv_issubset() function checks whether src is a subset of dst.

The priv_union() function takes the union of src and dst and places the
result in dst.


Upon successful completion, priv_allocset() returns a pointer to an
opaque data structure. It returns NULL if memory allocation fails and
sets errno to indicate the error.

Upon successful completion, priv_isemptyset(), priv_isfullset(),
priv_isequalset(), priv_issubset(), and priv_ismember() return B_TRUE.
Otherwise, they return B_FALSE.

Upon successful completion, priv_delset() and priv_addset() return 0.
Otherwise, they return -1 and set errno to indicate the error.


The priv_allocset() function will fail if:

The physical limits of the system are exceeded by the memory
allocation needed to hold a privilege set.

There is insufficient memory for allocation to hold a privilege
set. The application can try again later.

The priv_delset() and priv_addset() functions will fail if:

The privilege argument is not a valid privilege name.


See attributes(7) for descriptions of the following attributes:

|Interface Stability | Evolving |
|MT-Level | MT-Safe |


setppriv(2), malloc(3C), priv_str_to_set(3C), attributes(7),


The functions that compare sets operate on all bits of the set,
regardless of whether the specific privileges are currently defined in
the system.
