- initialize ACL working storage
Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).
Fn acl_init int count
function allocates and initializes the working storage for an ACL of at least
ACL entries. The ACL created initially contains no ACL entries.
A pointer to the working storage is returned.
This function may cause memory to be allocated. The caller should free any
releasable memory, when the new ACL is no longer required, by calling
as an argument.
On success, this function returns a pointer to the
working storage. On error, a value of
is returned, and
is set appropriately.
If any of the following conditions occur, the
function returns a value of
to the corresponding value:
- Bq Er EINVAL
The value of count is less than zero.
- Bq Er ENOMEM
to be returned requires more memory than is allowed by the hardware or
system-imposed memory management constraints.
