NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dxsetacl  -  Graphical  interface for setting the ACL on a
       file or directory

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/bin/X11/dxsetacl [arguments...]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The name of the file or directory to operate on.  The regular
  X  resources can be supplied to dxsetacl on the command

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The dxsetacl command provides a  graphical  interface  for
       examining and setting file access control lists (ACLs).

       If  a path is specified on the command line, the file system
 object represented by path is used as  the  target  of
       the  command.  In addition, there is a Find Object area on
       the main dialog box. A path may be typed in, or located by
       browsing  the file system. A file reference may be dragged
       from a CDE application, such  as  the  File  Manager,  and
       dropped  on  the  Find  Object  area.  Once  an  object is
       selected, its full path  name,  object  type,  owner,  and
       group are displayed along with the ACL.

       The  ACL  is displayed, one entry per line, in a list widget.
 Clicking on an entry selects it.  Double clicking  on
       an  entry or selecting the Change Entry button brings up a
       dialog that allows the fields of the entry to be modified.
       Clicking  on  the  Delete  Entry button removes the entry.
       The owning user, owning group, and other user entries  may
       be  modified but not deleted.  (See acl(4) for more information.)
  The New Entry button may be used to create a new
       group or user entry.

       If  the  object is a regular file, device special file, or
       UNIX domain socket, it only has  an  access  ACL.  If  the
       object  is  a  directory,  it has an access ACL, a default
       access ACL, and a default directory ACL. Which  ACL  of  a
       directory  is  being  edited  may be selected with a radio


       The dxsetacl command will show and set ACLs on file system
       objects, regardless of whether ACLs are used by the system
       for access decisions.  The  sysman  secconfig  utility  is
       used to enable ACL checking.
