FDETACH(1M) Maintenance Commands FDETACH(1M)


NAME


fdetach - detach a name from a STREAMS-based file descriptor

SYNOPSIS


fdetach path


DESCRIPTION


The fdetach command detaches a STREAMS-based file descriptor from a name
in the file system. Use the path operand to specify the path name of the
object in the file system name space, which was previously attached. See
fattach(3C).


The user must be the owner of the file or a user with the appropriate
privileges. All subsequent operations on path will operate on the
underlying file system entry and not on the STREAMS file. The permissions
and status of the entry are restored to the state they were in before the
STREAMS file was attached to the entry.

OPERANDS


The following operands are supported:

path
Specifies the path name of the object in the file system name
space, which was previously attached.
