[Win32utils-devel] Some more win32-security: SID.create

Hi all,

How does this look as a general approach to a SID.create method:

# Creates and initializes
def self.create(authority, *sub_authorities)
   if sub_authorities.length > 8
      raise ArgumentError, 'maximum of 8 subauthorities allowed'
   end

   authorities = Array.new(8, 0)
   authorities.replace(sub_authorities)
   count = authorities.select{ |e| e > 0 }.size

   if count == 0
      # Use InitializeSid()
   else
      # Use AllocateAndInitializeSid()
   end
end

Any help actually implementing this method would also be greatly
appreciated, as my attempts were not working out so well.

Thanks,

Dan
