+.TH CAP_RIGHTS_GET 2 2014-05-07 "Linux" "Linux Programmer's Manual"
+.SH NAME
+cap_rights_get \- retrieve Capsicum capability rights
+.SH SYNOPSIS
+.nf
+.B #include <sys/capsicum.h>
+.sp
+.BI "int cap_rights_get(int " fd ", struct cap_rights *" rights ,
+.BI " unsigned int *" fcntls ,
+.BI " int *" nioctls ", unsigned int *" ioctls );
+.SH DESCRIPTION
+Obtain the current Capsicum capability rights for a file descriptor.
+.PP
+The function will fill the
+.I rights
+argument (if non-NULL) with the primary capability rights of the
+.I fd
+descriptor. The result can be examined with the
+.BR cap_rights_is_set (3)
+family of functions. The complete list of primary rights can be found in the
+.BR rights (7)
+manual page.
+.PP
+If the
+.I fcntls
+argument is non-NULL, it will be filled in with a bitmask of allowed
+.BR fcntl (2)
+commands; see
+.BR cap_rights_limit (2)
+for values. If the file descriptor does not have the
+.B CAP_FCNTL
+primary right, the returned
+.I fcntls
+value will be zero.
+.PP
+If the
+.I nioctls
+argument is non-NULL, it will be filled in with the number of allowed
+.BR ioctl (2)
+commands, or with the value CAP_IOCTLS_ALL to indicate that all
+.BR ioctl (2)
+commands are allowed. If the file descriptor does not have the
+.B CAP_IOCTL
+primary right, the returned
+.I nioctls
+value will be zero.
+.PP
+The
+.I ioctls
+argument (if non-NULL) should point at memory that can hold up to
+.I nioctls
+values.
+The system call populates the provided buffer with up to
+.I nioctls
+elements, but always returns the total number of
+.BR ioctl (2)
+commands allowed for the given file descriptor in
+.I nioctls
+as described above.
+.PP
+If all
+.BR ioctl (2)
+commands are allowed (the
+.B CAP_IOCTL
+primary capability right is assigned to the file descriptor and the
+set of allowed
+.BR ioctl (2)
+commands was never limited for this file descriptor), the
+system call will not modify the buffer pointed to by the
+.I ioctls
+argument.
+.PP
+Capsicum capability rights assigned to a file descriptor can be reduced with the
+.BR cap_rights_limit (2)
+system call.
+.SH RETURN VALUE
+.BR cap_rights_get ()
+returns zero on success. On error, -1 is returned and
+.I errno
+is set appropriately.
+.SH ERRORS
+.TP
+.B EBADF
+.I fd
+isn't a valid open file descriptor.
+.TP
+.B EFAULT
+Invalid pointer argument.
+.SH VERSION
+Capsicum support was added to the kernel in version 3.???.
+.SH SEE ALSO
+.BR cap_enter (2),
+.BR cap_rights_limit (2),
+.BR cap_rights_init (3),
+.BR capsicum (7),
+.BR rights (7)
