fdetach(8)							    fdetach(8)

       fdetach - Detaches a STREAMS-based file descriptor from a file

       /usr/bin/fdetach path

       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
       appropriate permissions or must be the owner of the file and have write

       To detach the file descriptor for the STREAMS file /tmp/streamfile from
       its associated file system node, enter: fdetach /tmp/streamfile

       Specifies the command path.

       Functions: fattach(3), fdetach(3).

       Files: ffm(4), streamio(7)
