ACL_INIT(3)	       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual		   ACL_INIT(3)

NAME
     acl_init -- initialize ACL	working	storage

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

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

     acl_t
     acl_init(int count);

DESCRIPTION
     The acl_init() function allocates and initializes the working storage for
     an	ACL of at least	count ACL entries.  A pointer to the working storage
     is	returned.  The working storage allocated to contain the	ACL is freed
     by	a call to acl_free(3).	When the area is first allocated, it shall
     contain an	ACL that contains no ACL entries.

     This function may cause memory to be allocated.  The caller should	free
     any releasable memory, when the new ACL is	no longer required, by calling
     acl_free(3) with the (void*)acl_t as an argument.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
     FreeBSD's support for POSIX.1e interfaces and features is still under
     development at this time.

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion, this function shall return a pointer to the
     working storage.  Otherwise, a value of (acl_t)NULL shall be returned,
     and errno shall be	set to indicate	the error.

ERRORS
     If	any of the following conditions	occur, the acl_init() function shall
     return a value of (acl_t)NULL and set errno to the	corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]		The value of count is less than	zero.

     [ENOMEM]		The acl_t to be	returned requires more memory than is
			allowed	by the hardware	or system-imposed memory man-
			agement	constraints.

SEE ALSO
     acl(3), acl_free(3), posix1e(3)

STANDARDS
     POSIX.1e is described in IEEE POSIX.1e draft 17.  Discussion of the draft
     continues on the cross-platform POSIX.1e implementation mailing list.  To
     join this list, see the FreeBSD POSIX.1e implementation page for more
     information.

HISTORY
     POSIX.1e support was introduced in	FreeBSD	4.0, and development contin-
     ues.
