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

ACL_FROM_MODE(3)		   BSD Library Functions Manual 		 ACL_FROM_MODE(3)

NAME
     acl_from_mode -- create an ACL from file permission bits

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

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

     acl_t
     acl_from_mode(mode_t mode);

DESCRIPTION
     The acl_from_mode() function creates a minimal ACL that contains the three entries with tag
     types ACL_USER_OBJ, ACL_GROUP_OBJ, and ACL_OTHER, with permissions corresponding to the
     owner, group, and other permission bits of its argument mode.

RETURN VALUE
     Upon successful completion, this function returns a pointer to the working storage. Other-
     wise, a value of (acl_t)NULL is returned, and errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_from_mode() function returns a value of
     (acl_t)NULL and sets errno to the corresponding value:

     [ENOMEM]		The ACL working storage requires more memory than is allowed by the hard-
			ware 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).

SEE ALSO
     acl_equiv_mode(3), acl_get_file(3), acl(5)
