DESCRIPTION The acl_error() function converts an ACL error code such as returned by the acl_check() function to a text message describing the error condi- tion. In the POSIX locale, acl_check() returns the following descrip- tions 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 rec- ognized, 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).
