|ACL_FROM_TEXT(3)||Library Functions Manual||ACL_FROM_TEXT(3)|
LIBRARY¶Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).
acl_from_text() function converts the text form of the ACL referred to by buf_p into the internal form of an ACL and returns a pointer to the working storage that contains the ACL. The
acl_from_text() function accepts as input the long text form and short text form of an ACL as described in acl(5).
This function may cause memory to be allocated. The caller should
free any releasable memory, when the new ACL is no longer required, by
calling acl_free(3) with the
(void*)acl_t returned by
acl_from_text() as an argument.
RETURN VALUE¶On success, this function returns a pointer to the working storage. On error, a value of
(acl_t)NULLis returned, and errno is set appropriately.
ERRORS¶If any of the following conditions occur, the
acl_from_text() function returns a value of
(acl_t)NULLand sets errno to the corresponding value:
STANDARDS¶IEEE Std 1003.1e draft 17 (“POSIX.1e”, abandoned)
