SYNOPSIS

getfacl [-dh] []

DESCRIPTION

The getfacl utility writes discretionary access control information associated with the specified file(s) to standard output. If the getconf(1) utility indicates that { } _POSIX_ACL_EXTENDED is not in effect for a file then the standard discretionary access permissions are interpreted as an ACL containing only the required ACL entries.

The following option is available:

-d The operation applies to the default ACL of a directory instead of the access ACL. An error is generated if a default ACL cannot be associated with file.
-h If the target of the operation is a symbolic link, return the ACL from the symbolic link itself rather than following the link.

The following operand is available:

file A pathname of a file whose ACL shall be retrieved. If file is not specified, or a file is specified as , then getfacl reads a list of pathnames, each terminated by one newline character, from the standard input.

EXIT STATUS


.Ex -std

EXAMPLES

getfacl /

Retrieve ACL for the directory /.

getfacl -d /

Retrieve the default ACL for the directory /, if any.
