What is ACL ? I figure that it is linked to security and OLAP in V8. How to
use it ?
I believe it stands for Access Control List. I know that at least in MS Windows NT it is how the operatings system handles security (permissions) on files. It must be some kind of format for storing user, group, and the various permission the users or groups have.
I once tried to programatically get some of this info but found it was a little too difficult for me, it involved using various Windows API functions and setting up obscure attribute tables (that sascbtbl thing) involving complex C structures.
