NAME

acl_init - Allocate and initialize ACL working storage  

LIBRARY

Security Library (libpacl.a)  

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/acl.h>

acl_t acl_init(        const size_t size);
 

PARAMETERS

Specifies the size of the working storage in bytes.  

DESCRIPTION

NOTE: This function is based on Draft 13 of the POSIX P1003.6 standard. The function may change as the P1003.6 standard is finalized.

The acl_init() function allocates and initializes working storage for an ACL of at least size bytes. A pointer to the working storage is returned. When the area is first allocated, it contains a ACL that has no ACL entries.  

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion, the acl_init() function returns a pointer to the working storage. Otherwise, a NULL pointer is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.  

ERRORS

If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_init() function returns a value of NULL and sets errno to the corresponding value: The acl_t to be returned requires more memory than allowed by the hardware or system-imposed memory management constraints. The function is not supported by the implementation.
