    Command:

    acl_to_text

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

         #include <sys/types.h>
         #include <sys/acl.h>
    
         char *
         acl_to_text(acl_t acl, ssize_t *len_p);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

         The acl_to_text() function translates the ACL pointed to by the argument
         acl into a NULL terminated character string.  If the pointer len_p is not
         NULL, then the function returns the length of the string (not including
         the NULL terminator) in the location pointed to by len_p.  The format of
         the text string returned by acl_to_text() is the long text form defined
         in acl(5).  The ACL referred to by acl is not changed.
    
         This function allocates any memory necessary to contain the string and
         returns a pointer to the string.  The caller should free any releasable
         memory, when the new string is no longer required, by calling acl_free(3)
         with the (void*)char returned by acl_to_text() as an argument.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

         On success, this function returns a pointer to the long text form 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_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 a 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.
