FDETACH(3P)		   POSIX Programmer's Manual		   FDETACH(3P)

       This  manual  page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the	 corresponding
       Linux  manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may
       not be implemented on Linux.

       fdetach — detach a name from a STREAMS-based file descriptor (STREAMS)

       #include <stropts.h>

       int fdetach(const char *path);

       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.

       Upon  successful	 completion,  fdetach()	 shall return 0; otherwise, it
       shall return −1 and set errno to indicate the error.

       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.

	      The  length  of  a  component  of	 a  pathname  is  longer  than

       ENOENT A component of path does not name an existing file or path is an
	      empty string.

	      A	 component  of	the path prefix names an existing file that is
	      neither a directory nor a symbolic link to a directory,  or  the
	      path  argument  contains	at least one non-<slash> character and
	      ends with one or more trailing <slash> characters and  the  last
	      pathname	component  names  an  existing	file that is neither a
	      directory nor a symbolic link to 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.

	      The length of a pathname exceeds {PATH_MAX}, or pathname resolu‐
	      tion  of	a symbolic link produced an intermediate result with a
	      length that exceeds {PATH_MAX}.

       The following sections are informative.

   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 underly‐
       ing file, not to the STREAMS file.

	   #include <stropts.h>
	       char *pathname = "/tmp/named-STREAM";
	       int ret;

	       ret = fdetach(pathname);



       The fdetach() function may be removed in a future version.
