REMOVEXATTR(2)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		REMOVEXATTR(2)

       removexattr, lremovexattr, fremovexattr - remove an extended attribute

       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include <sys/xattr.h>

       int removexattr(const char *path, const char *name);
       int lremovexattr(const char *path, const char *name);
       int fremovexattr(int fd, const char *name);

       Extended attributes are name:value pairs associated with inodes (files,
       directories, symbolic links, etc.).  They are extensions to the	normal
       attributes  which  are  associated with all inodes in the system (i.e.,
       the stat(2) data).  A complete overview of extended attributes concepts
       can be found in attr(5).

       removexattr()  removes  the  extended  attribute identified by name and
       associated with the given path in the filesystem.

       lremovexattr() is identical to removexattr(), except in the case	 of  a
       symbolic	 link,	where  the extended attribute is removed from the link
       itself, not the file that it refers to.

       fremovexattr()  is  identical  to  removexattr(),  only	the   extended
       attribute  is removed from the open file referred to by fd (as returned
       by open(2)) in place of path.

       An extended attribute name is a	simple	null-terminated	 string.   The
       name includes a namespace prefix; there may be several, disjoint names‐
       paces associated with an individual inode.

       On success, zero is returned.  On failure, -1 is returned and errno  is
       set appropriately.

	      The named attribute does not exist.  (ENOATTR is defined to be a
	      synonym for ENODATA in <attr/xattr.h>.)

	      Extended attributes are not supported by the filesystem, or  are

       In addition, the errors documented in stat(2) can also occur.

       These system calls have been available on Linux since kernel 2.4; glibc
       support is provided since version 2.3.

       These system calls are Linux-specific.
