ACL_GET_FD(3) BSD Library Functions Manual ACL_GET_FD(3)
acl_get_fd — get an ACL by file descriptor
Linux Access Control Lists library (libacl, −lacl).
The acl_get_fd() function retrieves the access ACL associated with the file referred to by fd. The ACL is placed into working storage and acl_get_fd() returns a pointer to that storage.
In order to read an ACL from an object, a process must have read access to the object’s attributes.
This function may cause memory to be allocated. The caller should free any releasable memory, when the new ACL is no longer required, by calling acl_free(3) with the (void*)acl_t returned by acl_get_fd() as an argument.
On success, this function shall return a pointer to the working storage. On error, a value of (acl_t)NULL shall be returned, and errno is set appropriately.
If any of the following conditions occur, the acl_get_fd() function returns a value of (acl_t)NULL and sets errno to the corresponding value:
The fd argument is not a valid file descriptor.
The ACL working storage requires more memory than is allowed by the hardware or system-imposed memory management constraints.
The file system on which the file identified by fd is located does not support ACLs, or ACLs are disabled.

Personal Opportunity - Free software gives you access to billions of dollars of software at no cost. Use this software for your business, personal use or to develop a profitable skill. Access to source code provides access to a level of capabilities/information that companies protect though copyrights. Open source is a core component of the Internet and it is available to you. Leverage the billions of dollars in resources and capabilities to build a career, establish a business or change the world. The potential is endless for those who understand the opportunity.
Business Opportunity - Goldman Sachs, IBM and countless large corporations are leveraging open source to reduce costs, develop products and increase their bottom lines. Learn what these companies know about open source and how open source can give you the advantage.
Free Software provides computer programs and capabilities at no cost but more importantly, it provides the freedom to run, edit, contribute to, and share the software. The importance of free software is a matter of access, not price. Software at no cost is a benefit but ownership rights to the software and source code is far more significant.
Free Office Software - The Libre Office suite provides top desktop productivity tools for free. This includes, a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation engine, drawing and flowcharting, database and math applications. Libre Office is available for Linux or Windows.
The Free Books Library is a collection of thousands of the most popular public domain books in an online readable format. The collection includes great classical literature and more recent works where the U.S. copyright has expired. These books are yours to read and use without restrictions.
Source Code - Want to change a program or know how it works? Open Source provides the source code for its programs so that anyone can use, modify or learn how to write those programs themselves. Visit the GNU source code repositories to download the source.
Study at Harvard, Stanford or MIT - Open edX provides free online courses from Harvard, MIT, Columbia, UC Berkeley and other top Universities. Hundreds of courses for almost all major subjects and course levels. Open edx also offers some paid courses and selected certifications.
Linux Manual Pages - A man or manual page is a form of software documentation found on Linux/Unix operating systems. Topics covered include computer programs (including library and system calls), formal standards and conventions, and even abstract concepts.
