    Hi there,

    Is ACL similar to Unix Shell Scripting or Python Scripting. Can it be used in Ubuntu or Cygwin? Is it difficult to learn?Is the tools associated with it free?

    • devalv,
      No, it is not similar. You can only use it inside the ACL software.

      It is easier to learn than Unix Shell scripting or Powershell. It is similar to BASIC programming language, but much more powerful. I taught myself.

      ACL software will cost you around 1500 a license, give or take.
