fdetach(3C)						   Standard C Library Functions 					       fdetach(3C)

NAME
fdetach - detach a name from a STREAMS-based file descriptor SYNOPSIS
#include <stropts.h> int fdetach(const char *path); DESCRIPTION
The fdetach() function detaches a STREAMS-based file from the file to which it was attached by a previous call to fattach(3C). The path argument points to the pathname of the attached STREAMS file. The process must have appropriate privileges or be the owner of the file. A successful call to fdetach() causes all pathnames that named the attached STREAMS file to again name the file to which the STREAMS file was attached. All subsequent operations on path will operate on the underlying file and not on the STREAMS file. All open file descriptions established while the STREAMS file was attached to the file referenced by path, will still refer to the STREAMS file after the fdetach() has taken effect. If there are no open file descriptors or other references to the STREAMS file, then a successful call to fdetach() has the same effect as performing the last close(2) on the attached file. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, fdetach() returns 0. Otherwise, it returns -1 and sets errno to indicate the error. ERRORS
The fdetach() function will fail if: EACCES Search permission is denied on a component of the path prefix. EPERM The effective user ID is not the owner of path and the process does not have appropriate privileges. ENOTDIR A component of the path prefix is not a directory. ENOENT A component of path does not name an existing file or path is an empty string. EINVAL The path argument names a file that is not currently attached. ENAMETOOLONG The size of a pathname exceeds PATH_MAX, or a pathname component is longer than NAME_MAX while _POSIX_NO_TRUNC is in effect. ELOOP Too many symbolic links were encountered in resolving path. The fdetach() function may fail if: ENAMETOOLONG Pathname resolution of a symbolic link produced an intermediate result whose length exceeds PATH_MAX. ATTRIBUTES

This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the correspond- ing Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux. NAME
fdetach - detach a name from a STREAMS-based file descriptor (STREAMS) SYNOPSIS
#include <stropts.h> int fdetach(const char *path); DESCRIPTION
The fdetach() function shall detach a STREAMS-based file from the file to which it was attached by a previous call to fattach(). The path argument points to the pathname of the attached STREAMS file. The process shall have appropriate privileges or be the owner of the file. A successful call to fdetach() shall cause all pathnames that named the attached STREAMS file to again name the file to which the STREAMS file was attached. All subsequent operations on path shall operate on the underlying file and not on the STREAMS file. All open file descriptions established while the STREAMS file was attached to the file referenced by path shall still refer to the STREAMS file after the fdetach() has taken effect. If there are no open file descriptors or other references to the STREAMS file, then a successful call to fdetach() shall be equivalent to performing the last close() on the attached file. RETURN VALUE
Upon successful completion, fdetach() shall return 0; otherwise, it shall return -1 and set errno to indicate the error. ERRORS
The fdetach() function shall fail if: EACCES Search permission is denied on a component of the path prefix. EINVAL The path argument names a file that is not currently attached. ELOOP A loop exists in symbolic links encountered during resolution of the path argument. ENAMETOOLONG The size of a pathname exceeds {PATH_MAX} or a pathname component is longer than {NAME_MAX}. ENOENT A component of path does not name an existing file or path is an empty string. ENOTDIR A component of the path prefix is not a directory. EPERM The effective user ID is not the owner of path and the process does not have appropriate privileges. The fdetach() function may fail if: ELOOP More than {SYMLOOP_MAX} symbolic links were encountered during resolution of the path argument. ENAMETOOLONG Pathname resolution of a symbolic link produced an intermediate result whose length exceeds {PATH_MAX}. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
Detaching a File The following example detaches the STREAMS-based file /tmp/named-STREAM from the file to which it was attached by a previous, successful call to fattach(). Subsequent calls to open this file refer to the underlying file, not to the STREAMS file. #include <stropts.h> ... char *filename = "/tmp/named-STREAM"; int ret; ret = fdetach(filename); APPLICATION USAGE
