NAME
     acl_entries -- return the number of entries in an ACL

LIBRARY
     Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <acl/libacl.h>

     int
     acl_entries(acl_t acl);

DESCRIPTION
     The acl_entries() function returns the number of ACL entries that are contained in the ACL
     referred to by the argument acl.

RETURN VALUE
     The acl_entries() function returns the number of entries in acl if successful; otherwise the
     value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_entries() function returns -1 and sets
     errno to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]		The argument acl is not a valid pointer to an ACL.

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).
