Created by: CanWood
Would it be possible to have the access checks on bam files enhanced to check whether or not POSIX ACLs will allow users to access files? HTS.pm line 1387 uses filetest access and, according to the perldoc for filetest
...you may encounter surprises if your program runs on a system that uses ACLs, since the stat() information won't reflect the actual permissions.
Any chance these tests could be enhanced to allow use of ACL on supporting systems?
