    Command:

    acl_to_any_text

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

         #include <sys/types.h>
         #include <acl/libacl.h>
    
         char *
         acl_to_any_text(acl_t acl, const char *prefix, char separator,
                 int options);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

         The acl_to_any_text() function translates the ACL pointed to by the argu-
         ment acl into a NULL terminated character string. This character string
         is composed of the ACL entries contained in acl, in the entry text format
         described on acl(5).  Entries are separated from each other by the
         separator character. If the argument prefix is not (const char *)NULL,
         each entry is prefixed by this character string.
    
         If the argument options is 0, ACL entries are converted using the entry
         tag type keywords user, group, mask, and other.  User IDs and group IDs
         of ACL entries that contain such qualifiers are converted to their corre-
         sponding names; if an identifier has no corresponding name, a decimal
         number string is produced. The ACL text representation contains no addi-
         tional comments.  A bitwise combinations of the following options can be
         used to modify the result:
    
         TEXT_ABBREVIATE
                       Instead of the full tag type keywords, single letter abbre-
                       viations are used.  The abbreviation for user is u, the
                       abbreviation for group is g, the abbreviation for mask is
                       m, and the abbreviation for other is o.
    
         TEXT_NUMERIC_IDS
                       User IDs and group IDs are included as decimal numbers
                       instead of names.
    
         TEXT_SOME_EFFECTIVE
                       A comment containing the effective permissions of the ACL
                       entry is included after ACL entries that contain permis-
                       sions which are ineffective because they are masked by an
                       ACL_MASK entry. The ACL entry and the comment are separated
                       by a tab character.
    
         TEXT_ALL_EFFECTIVE
                       A comment containing the effective permissions of the ACL
                       entry is included after all ACL entries that are affected
                       by an ACL_MASK entry.  The comment is included even if the
                       permissions contained in the ACL entry equal the effective
                       permissions. The ACL entry and the comment are separated by
                       a tab character.
    
         TEXT_SMART_INDENT
                       This option is used in combination with the
    
         On success, this function returns a pointer to the text representation of
         the ACL.  On error, a value of (char *)NULL is returned, and errno is set
         appropriately.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

         If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_to_any_text() function
         returns a value of (char *)NULL and sets errno to the corresponding
         value:
    
         [EINVAL]           The argument acl is not a valid pointer to an ACL.
    
                            The ACL referenced by acl contains one or more improp-
                            erly formed ACL entries, or for some other reason can-
                            not be translated into the text form of an ACL.
    
         [ENOMEM]           The character string to be returned requires more mem-
                            ory than is allowed by the hardware or system-imposed
                            memory management constraints.
    
    
    

    STANDARDS

         This is a non-portable, Linux specific extension to the ACL manipulation
         functions defined in IEEE Std 1003.1e draft 17 ("POSIX.1e", abandoned).
