acl_t *acl_p );
Security Library (libpacl.a)
Points to the working storage internal representation ACL to create the
new entry in.
NOTE: This function is based on Draft 13 of the POSIX P1003.6 stan‐
The acl_create_entry() function creates a new ACL entry in the ACL
pointed to by the acl_p argument. If there is insufficient space in
the ACL for creating a new entry, then additional memory is allocated.
The components of the new ACL entry are initialized as follows: The ACL
tag type component does not contain a possible ACL tag type The tag
qualifier component does not refer to any possible user ID or group ID
The set of permissions does not have any permissions specified.
Upon successful completion, the acl_create_entry() function returns the
descriptor for the new entry. Otherwise, a value of NULL is returned,
and errno is set to indicate the error.
If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_create_entry() func‐
tion sets errno to the corresponding value: The acl_p argument does not
refer to a valid ACL. The new ACL entry requires more memory than the
system is able to provide.
