fdetach - Detaches a STREAMS-based file descriptor from a file
The fdetach command dissociates a STREAMS-based file descriptor from a
file, which is pointed to by the path parameter. The STREAMS-based file
descriptor was associated with the file by a prior program call, typically
the fattach()|*O function.
When this command is successful, it causes all path names that named the
attached STREAMS file to again name the file to which the STREAMS file was
attached. All subsequent operations on the file pointed to by thepath
parameter are performed on the underlying file and not on the STREAMS file.
The permissions and status of the node are returned to the state that they
were in before the STREAMS file was attached. Any other paths that the
STREAMS file may be attached to are not affected.
To successfully issue the fdetach command, the user must have the appropri-
ate permissions or must be the owner of the file and have write permission.
To detach the file descriptor for the STREAMS file /tmp/streamfile from its
associated file system node, enter:
