function hook_perm

This hook defines available permissions for a module. These perms are used with hook_menu() and the function user_has_permission()

They are defined in the form of an associative array.

Return array should look like this: $rtn["machine_name_of_perm"] = array( "title" => "Human readable title for perm", "description" => "Optional longer description of what perm allows.", "admin_restricted" => FALSE, // Optional. If TRUE, only admin (user_id 1) can grant this permission to other roles. );
