lfc-getacl - get LFC directory/file access control lists
lfc-getacl [-a] [-d] path...
lfc-getacl gets the Access Control List associated with a LFC
directory/file. For each path, it displays the file name, owner, the
group, and the Access Control List (ACL) if present. If a directory has
a default ACL, lfc-getacl also displays the default ACL. Regular files
cannot have default ACLs.
The output looks like:
# file: filename
# owner: username
# group: groupname
The first "user" entry gives the permissions granted to the owner of
the file. The following "user" entries show the permissions granted to
specific users, they are sorted in ascending order of uid. The first
"group" entry gives the permissions granted to the group owner of the
file. The following "group" entries show the permissions granted to
specific groups, they are sorted in ascending order of gid. The "mask"
entry is the maximum permission granted to specific users or groups.
It does not affect the "owner" and "other" permissions. The "mask"
entry must be present if there are specific "user" or "group" entries.
"default" entries associated with a directory are inherited as access
ACL by the files or sub-directories created in that directory. The
umask is not used. Sub-directories also inherit the default ACL as
default ACL. As soon as there is one default ACL entry, the 3 default
ACL base entries (default user, default group, default other) must be
The entry processing conforms to the Posix 1003.1e draft standard 17.

uid is displayed as the username if known else as the numeric id.
