CLUNK(5)                      File Formats Manual                     CLUNK(5)



NAME
       clunk - forget about a fid

SYNOPSIS
       Tclunk  tag[2] fid[2]
       Rclunk  tag[2] fid[2]

DESCRIPTION
       The  clunk request informs the file server that the current file repre-
       sented by fid is no longer needed by the client.  The  actual  file  is
       not removed on the server.

       Once  a fid has been clunked, the same fid can be reused in a new clone
       request.

       Even if the clunk returns an error, the fid is no longer valid.

ENTRY POINTS
       A clunk message is generated by close and indirectly by  other  actions
       such as failed open calls.
