ACL_SIZE(3) BSD Library Functions Manual ACL_SIZE(3)NAME
acl_size — get the size of the external representation of an ACL
Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).
The 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 acl_copy_ext().
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 con‐
tiguous, 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:
[EINVAL] The argument acl is not a valid pointer to an ACL.
