REMOVE(5)REMOVE(5)NAMEremove - remove a file from a server
size Tremove tag fid
size Rremove tag
The remove request asks the file server both to remove the file repre‐
sented by fid and to clunk the fid, even if the remove fails. This
request will fail if the client does not have write permission in the
It is correct to consider remove to be a clunk with the side effect of
removing the file if permissions allow.
If a file has been opened as multiple fids, possibly on different con‐
nections, and one fid is used to remove the file, whether the other
fids continue to provide access to the file is implementation-defined.
The Plan 9 file servers (like fs(4)) remove the file immediately:
attempts to use the other fids will yield a ``phase error.'' U9fs(4)
follows the semantics of the underlying Unix file system, so other fids
typically remain usable.
Remove messages are generated by remove.
