explain_acl_to_text_or_die(Library Functions Manuexplain_acl_to_text_or_die(3)

NAME
       explain_acl_to_text_or_die - convert an ACL to text and report errors

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libexplain/acl_to_text.h>
       char *explain_acl_to_text_or_die(acl_t acl, ssize_t *len_p);
       char *explain_acl_to_text_on_error(acl_t	acl, ssize_t *len_p);

DESCRIPTION
       The   explain_acl_to_text_or_die	  function   is	  used	 to  call  the
       acl_to_text(3) system call. On failure an explanation will  be  printed
       to  stderr, obtained from the explain_acl_to_text(3) function, and then
       the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).

       The  explain_acl_to_text_on_error  function  is	used   to   call   the
       acl_to_text(3)  system  call. On	failure	an explanation will be printed
       to stderr, obtained from	the explain_acl_to_text(3) function, but still
       returns to the caller.

       acl     The  acl,  exactly as to	be passed to the acl_to_text(3)	system
	       call.

       len_p   The len_p, exactly as to	be passed to the acl_to_text(3)	system
	       call.

RETURN VALUE
       The  explain_acl_to_text_or_die	function  only returns on success, see
       acl_to_text(3) for more information. On failure,	prints an  explanation
       and exits, it does not return.

       The  explain_acl_to_text_on_error function always returns the value re-
       turn by the wrapped acl_to_text(3) system call.

EXAMPLE
       The explain_acl_to_text_or_die function is intended to  be  used	 in  a
       fashion similar to the following	example:
	      char *result = explain_acl_to_text_or_die(acl, len_p);
