acl_get_file - Given the pathname to an object, retrieve the designated ACL
Security Library (libpacl.a)
Designates the pathname to retrieve the ACL from. Designates the type of ACL to retrieve: ACL_TYPE_ACCESS, ACL_TYPE_DEFAULT, or ACL_TYPE_DEFAULT_DIR.
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_get_file() function retrieves the designated ACL via a pathname. The type of ACL being retrieved is designated in acl_type_t. Working system storage is allocated as needed.
Upon successful completion, the acl_get_file() function returns a pointer to the working storage internal representation copy of the ACL. Otherwise, a value of NULL is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.
If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_get_file() function sets errno to the corresponding value:
The required access to the file was denied. The type_d argument is not a recognized ACL type. The path name is longer then allowed. The object does not exist. There is not enough memory available to the process to allocate the working storage. The argument type_d indicates a default ACL, and path_p does not point to a directory object.
