|ACL_INIT(3)||Library Functions Manual||ACL_INIT(3)|
LIBRARY¶Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).
acl_init() function allocates and initializes the working storage for an ACL of at least count ACL entries. The ACL created initially contains no ACL entries. A pointer to the working storage is returned.
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_init() 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_init() function returns a value of
(acl_t)NULLand sets errno to the corresponding value:
