Getting ACL Entry

 */


/* PUBLIC                                               HTAA_getAclEntry()
**                      CONSULT THE ACCESS CONTROL LIST AND
**                      GIVE A LIST OF GROUPS (AND USERS)
**                      AUTHORIZED TO ACCESS A GIVEN FILE
** ON ENTRY:
**      acl_file        is an open ACL file.
**      pathname        is the absolute pathname of
**                      the file to be accessed.
**      method          is the method for which access is wanted.
**
** ALC FILE FORMAT:
**
**      template : method, method, ... : group@addr, user, group, ...
**
**      The last item is in fact in exactly the same format as
**      group definition in group file, i.e. everything that
**      follows the 'groupname:' part,
**      e.g.
**              user, group, user@address, group@address,
**              (user,group,...)@(address, address, ...)
**
** ON EXIT:
**      returns         NULL, if there is no entry for the file in the ACL,
**                      or ACL doesn't exist.
**                      If there is, a GroupDef object containing the
**                      group and user names allowed to access the file
**                      is returned (this is automatically freed
**                      next time this function is called).
** IMPORTANT:
**      Returns the first entry with matching template and
**      method. This function should be called multiple times
**      to process all the valid entries (until it returns NULL).
**      This is because there can be multiple entries like:
**
**              *.html : get,put : ari,timbl,robert
**              *.html : get     : jim,james,jonathan,jojo
**
** NOTE:
**      The returned group definition may well contain references
**      to groups defined in group file. Therefore these references
**      must be resolved according to that rule file by function
**      HTAA_resolveGroupReferences() (group file is read in by
**      HTAA_readGroupFile()) and after that access authorization
**      can be checked with function HTAA_userAndInetGroup().
