    Command:

    attr_remove

    
    
    
    

    C SYNOPSIS

           #include <attr/attributes.h>
    
           int attr_remove (const char *path, const char *attrname, int flags);
    
           int attr_removef (int fd, const char *attrname, int flags);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The attr_remove and attr_removef functions provide a way to remove pre-
           viously created attributes from filesystem objects.
    
           Path  points  to  a path name for a filesystem object, and fd refers to
           the file descriptor associated with a file.  If the attribute  attrname
           exists, the attribute name and value will be removed from the fileystem
           object.  The flags argument can contain the following  symbols  bitwise
           OR?ed together:
    
           ATTR_ROOT
                  Look  for  attrname  in  the root address space, not in the user
                  address space.  (limited to use by super-user only)
    
           ATTR_DONTFOLLOW
                  Do not follow  symbolic  links  when  resolving  a  path  on  an
                  attr_remove  function  call.   The default is to follow symbolic
                  links.
    
           attr_remove will fail if one or more of the following are true:
    
           [ENOATTR]        The attribute name given is not  associated  with  the
                            indicated filesystem object.
    
           [ENOENT]         The named file does not exist.
    
           [EPERM]          The  effective user ID does not match the owner of the
                            file and the effective user ID is not super-user.
    
           [ENOTDIR]        A component of the path prefix is not a directory.
    
           [EACCES]         Search permission is denied on a component of the path
                            prefix.
    
           [EINVAL]         A bit was set in the flag argument that is not defined
                            for this system call.
    
           [EFAULT]         Path points outside the allocated address space of the
                            process.
    
           [ELOOP]          A path name lookup involved too many symbolic links.
    
           [ENAMETOOLONG]   The length of path exceeds {MAXPATHLEN}, or a pathname
                            component is longer than {MAXNAMELEN}.
    
    
    

    DIAGNOSTICS

           On success, zero is returned.  On error, -1 is returned, and  errno  is
           set appropriately.
