Welcome to pylibacl’s documentation!¶
This is a Python 2.4+ extension module allows you to manipulate the POSIX.1e Access Control Lists present in some OS/file-systems combinations.
For any issues, please file bugs at https://github.com/iustin/pylibacl/issues.
pylibacl has been written and tested on Linux, kernel v2.4 or newer, with XFS filesystems; ext2/ext3 should also work. Since release 0.4.0, FreeBSD 7 also has quite good support. If any other platform implements the POSIX.1e draft, pylibacl can be used. I heard that Solaris does, but I can’t test it.
- Python 2.4 or newer
- operating system:
- Linux, kernel v2.4 or newer, and the libacl library and development packages (all modern distributions should have this, under various names); also the file-systems you use must have ACLs turned on, either as a compile or mount option
- FreeBSD 7.0 or newer
