acl_from_text - Converts the textual representation of an ACL to an internal representation
Security Library (libpacl.a)
Points to the text external representation of the ACL to be converted.
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_from_text() function converts the textual representation of the ACL into the working storage internal representation used by the ACL subsystem. Working system storage is allocated as required.
Upon successful completion, the acl_from_text function returns an address pointing to the ACL translated. Otherwise, a value of NULL is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.
If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_from_text() function sets errno to the corresponding value:
The argument buf_p cannot be translated into an ACL. There is not enough memory available to the process to allocate the working storage.
