#include <tsol/label.h> int getlabel(const char *path, m_label_t *label_p);
int fgetlabel(int fd, m_label_t *label_p);
The getlabel() function obtains the sensitivity label of the file that is named by path. Discretionary read, write or execute permission to the final component of path is not required, but all directories in the path prefix of path must be searchable.
The fgetlabel() function obtains the label of an open file that is referred to by the argument descriptor, such as would be obtained by an open(2) call.
The label_p argument is a pointer to an opaque label structure. The caller must allocate space for label_p by using m_label_alloc(3TSOL).
Upon successful completion, getlabel() and fgetlabel() return 0. Otherwise they return -1 and set errno to indicate the error.
The getlabel() function will fail if:
The fgetlabel() function will fail if:
