NAME
       context_new,   context_str,   context_free,   context_type_get,   context_type_set,   context_range_get,   con-
       text_range_set,context_role_get, context_role_set, context_user_get, context_user_set - Routines to  manipulate
       SELinux security contexts


SYNOPSIS
       #include <selinux/context.h>

       context_t context_new(const char * context_str );

       const char * context_str(context_t  con );

       void context_free(context_t  con );

       const char * context_type_get(context_t  con );

       const char * context_range_get(context_t  con );

       const char * context_role_get(context_t  con );

       const char * context_user_get(context_t  con );

       const char * context_type_set(context_t  con , const char*  type);

       const char * context_range_set(context_t  con , const char*  range);

       const char * context_role_set(context_t  con , const char*  role );

       const char * context_user_set(context_t  con , const char*  user );


DESCRIPTION
       These functions allow an application to manipulate the fields of a security context string without requiring it
       to know the format of the string.

       context_new
        Return a new context initialized to a context string

       context_str Return a pointer to the string value of the context_t Valid until the next call to  context_str  or
       context_free for the same context_t*

       context_free Free the storage used by a context

       context_type_get,  context_range_get, context_role_get, context_user_get Get a pointer to the string value of a
       context component

       NOTE: Values returned by the get functions are only valid until the  next  call  to  a  set  function  or  con-
       text_free() for the same context_t structure.

       context_type_set, context_range_set, context_role_set, context_user_set Set a context component


RETURN VALUE
       On success, zero is returned. On failure, -1 is returned and errno is set appropriately.
