RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for acl_error (redhat section 3)

ACL_CHECK(3)				     BSD Library Functions Manual				 ACL_CHECK(3)

NAME
acl_error -- convert an ACL error code to a text message
LIBRARY
Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).
SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <acl/libacl.h> const char * acl_error(int code);
DESCRIPTION
The acl_error() function converts an ACL error code such as returned by the acl_check() function to a text mes- sage describing the error condition. In the "POSIX" locale, acl_check() returns the following descriptions for the error codes. ACL_MULTI_ERROR "Multiple entries" ACL_DUPLICATE_ERROR "Duplicate entries" ACL_MISS_ERROR "Missing or wrong entry" ACL_ENTRY_ERROR "Invalid entry type"
RETURN VALUE
The acl_error() function returns a text message if the error code is recognized, and a value of (const char *)NULL otherwise.
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).
