mktrashcan(1)							 mktrashcan(1)

       mktrashcan,  rmtrashcan,	 shtrashcan  -	Attaches, detaches, or shows a
       trashcan directory

       /usr/sbin/mktrashcan trashcan directory...

       /usr/sbin/rmtrashcan directory...

       /usr/sbin/shtrashcan directory...

       Specifies the directory that contains  files  that  were	 deleted  from
       attached	 directories.	Whenever  you  delete  a file in the specified
       directory, the file system automatically moves the file to the trashcan
       directory.   Specifies  the  directory  that  you  attach to a trashcan

       The trashcan utilities (mktrashcan and rmtrashcan) enable you to attach
       or detach an existing directory, which you specify as a trashcan direc‐
       tory, to any number of directories within the same fileset.

       A trashcan directory stores the files that are deleted with the	unlink
       system call. For instance, you can use the mktrashcan utility to attach
       a trashcan directory called /usr/trashcan to one or  more  directories;
       thereafter,  when  you  delete a file from one of the attached directo‐
       ries, the file system moves the file to	the  /usr/trashcan  directory.
       Note  that when more than one directory shares attachment to a trashcan
       directory, files with the same file name can overwrite  each  other  in
       the trashcan directory.

       If  you mistakenly delete a file, use the mv command to return the file
       from the /usr/trashcan directory to its original directory.

       When you enter shtrashcan at the system prompt, the  system  shows  the
       trashcan directory, if one exists, for the directory you specified.

       It  is  important that trashcan directories have correct access permis‐
       sions.  If the permissions are too restrictive, then it may be impossi‐
       ble  to	remove	files  from  the  directories that are attached to the
       trashcan directory. In general, all users and groups that expect to use
       the trashcan directory need write permission to the directory. If unex‐
       pected “permission denied” errors occur when deleting files that are in
       a  directory attached to a trashcan directory, use the chmod command to
       change the permissions on the trashcan directory.

       The directory and trashcan directories must be  in  the	same  fileset;
       however,	 you can attach the trashcan directory to any directory within
       the fileset.

       The following  example  creates	and  attaches  a  trashcan  directory,
       /usr/trashcan, to two directories, /usr/ray and /usr/projects/sql/test,
       which are in the same fileset. The chmod command adds write  permission
       for  all	 users	and  groups  on	 the  new trashcan directory.  % mkdir
       /usr/trashcan % chmod  a+w  /usr/trashcan  %  mktrashcan	 /usr/trashcan
       /usr/ray	 /usr/projects/sql/test	 To  attach  the  trashcan  directory,
       /usr/trashcan, to all subdirectories in the /usr	 directory,  enter:  %
       mktrashcan /usr/trashcan /usr/*

	      New  subdirectories  that you add beneath the /usr directory are
	      not attached to the trashcan directory until  you	 attach	 them.
	      Also,  the  mktrashcan utility distinguishes between directories
	      and files, attaching only directories to the trashcan directory.

	      Note that an  attached  directory	 produces  an  EDUPLICATE_DIRS
	      (-1165) error when /usr/trashcan is itself in the directory path
	      you attach to (as in the previous example).  You can ignore this
	      error message.
