     acl_to_text — convert an ACL to text

     Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, -lacl).

     char *
     acl_to_text(acl_t acl, ssize_t *len_p);

     The acl_to_text() function translates the ACL pointed to by the argument
     acl into a NULL terminated character string.  If the pointer len_p is not
     NULL, then the function returns the length of the string (not including
     the NULL terminator) in the location pointed to by len_p.	The format of
     the text string returned by acl_to_text() is the long text form defined
     in acl(5).	 The ACL referred to by acl is not changed.

     This function allocates any memory necessary to contain the string and
     returns a pointer to the string.  The caller should free any releasable
     memory, when the new string is no longer required, by calling acl_free(3)
     with the (void*)char returned by acl_to_text() as an argument.

     On success, this function returns a pointer to the long text form of the
     ACL.  On error, a value of (char *)NULL is returned, and errno is set

     If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_to_text() function
     returns a value of (char *)NULL and sets errno to the corresponding

     [EINVAL]		The argument acl is not a valid pointer to an ACL.

			The ACL referenced by acl contains one or more improp‐
			erly formed ACL entries, or for some other reason can‐
			not be translated into a text form of an ACL.

     [ENOMEM]		The character string to be returned requires more mem‐
			ory than is allowed by the hardware or system-imposed
			memory management constraints.
