Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).
acl_size() function return the size, in bytes, of the buffer required to hold the exportable, contiguous, persistent form of the ACL pointed to by the argument acl, when converted by
Any existing ACL entry descriptors that refer to entries in acl continue to refer to the same entries. Any existing ACL pointers that refer to the ACL referred to by acl continue to refer to the ACL. The order of ACL entries within acl remains unchanged.
On success, the
acl_size() function returns the size in bytes of the contiguous, persistent form of the ACL. On error, a value of
(ssize_t)-1 is returned and errno is set appropriately.
If any of the following conditions occur, the
acl_size() function returns a value of
(ssize_t)-1 and sets errno to the corresponding value:
The argument acl is not a valid pointer to an ACL.
