Function : Database
NSFDbReadACL - Read in the access control list of a database.

#include <nsfdb.h>

    DHANDLE far *rethACL);
Description :

This function reads the access control list of a database into memory and returns a handle to the in-memory copy. All subsequent access to the access control list is carried out via this handle. If you modify this in-memory copy of the access control list, use NSFDbStoreACL to store it in the database.

Parameters : Input : hDB - Handle to the database.

Output : (routine) - Return status from this call -- indicates either sucess or what the error is. The return codes include:

NOERROR - success

ERR_xxx - Errors returned by lower level functions. There are so many possible causes, that it is best to use the code in a call to OSLoadString and display/log the error for the user.

rethACL - Pointer to the returned handle to the access control list. Use OSMemFree to free the memory associated with this handle when this handle is not longer needed for processing.
