Title: *nix file system ACLs permissions
Post by: Weaver on September 23, 2018, 04:12:09 AM
The basic *nix permissions based on ownership and user / group / world (is that right?) are fairly basic.

I was wondering about systems that have flexible powerful ACLs such as we find in Win NT especially post NT4 service pack x and then NT 5.0 aka Win 2000.

I found this article  https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Access_Control_Lists

Was wondering about the requirements for this kind of good stuff?

What do you mean by "requirements"? ACLs will have been supported by every Linux distribution and filesystem for ages.

And implemented in macOS since 10.4 (Tiger) thirteen years ago:
