CLWALK(5)                     File Formats Manual                    CLWALK(5)



NAME
       clwalk - clone, then search a directory, and change to a file within it

SYNOPSIS
       Tclwalk  tag[2] fid[2] newfid[2] name[28]
       Rclwalk  tag[2] fid[2] qid[8]

DESCRIPTION
       The  clwalk  request is a combination of a clone request (see clone(5))
       followed by a walk request (see walk(5)) on the new fid.  If  the  walk
       fails, there is an implicit clunk of newfid.

ENTRY POINTS
       The clwalk message is an optimization for use on low-speed lines; it is
       not generated by the kernel.  The cfs(4) cached file  system  generates
       it as a side-effect of any system call that interprets a file name.
