DESCRIPTION

The acl_valid function checks the ACL referred to by the argument acl for validity.
The three required entries ACL_USER_OBJ, ACL_GROUP_OBJ, and ACL_OTHER must exist exactly once in the ACL. If the ACL contains any ACL_USER or ACL_GROUP entries, then an ACL_MASK entry is also required. The ACL may contain at most one ACL_MASK entry.
The user identifiers must be unique among all entries of type ACL_USER. The group identifiers must be unique among all entries of type ACL_GROUP.

RETURN VALUE


.Rv -std acl_valid
