A Python module for manipulating POSIX.1e ACLs.
pylibacl is a Python module for manipulating POSIX.1e ACLs.

This python 2.4+ extension module allows you to manipulate the POSIX.1e Access Control Lists present in some os/filesystem combinations.

Developer comments

pylibacl has been written and tested on Linux, kernel v 2.4, with XFS filesystems; ext2/ext3 should work also. 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 yet.
