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


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


      The name of the file or directory	to operate on.

      The regular X resources can be supplied to dxsetacl on the command


  The dxsetacl command provides	a graphical interface for examining and	set-
  ting 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 own-
  ing 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 button.


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