    Command:

    lremovexattr

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <sys/types.h>
           #include <sys/xattr.h>
    
           int removexattr(const char *path, const char *name);
           int lremovexattr(const char *path, const char *name);
           int fremovexattr(int fd, const char *name);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Extended attributes are name:value pairs associated with inodes (files,
           directories, symbolic links, etc.).  They are extensions to the  normal
           attributes  which  are  associated with all inodes in the system (i.e.,
           the stat(2) data).  A complete overview of extended attributes concepts
           can be found in attr(5).
    
           removexattr()  removes  the  extended  attribute identified by name and
           associated with the given path in the filesystem.
    
           lremovexattr() is identical to removexattr(), except in the case  of  a
           symbolic  link,  where  the extended attribute is removed from the link
           itself, not the file that it refers to.
    
           fremovexattr()  is  identical  to  removexattr(),  only  the   extended
           attribute  is removed from the open file referred to by fd (as returned
           by open(2)) in place of path.
    
           An extended attribute name is a  simple  null-terminated  string.   The
           name includes a namespace prefix; there may be several, disjoint names-
           paces associated with an individual inode.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

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

    ERRORS

           ENOATTR
                  The named attribute does not exist.  (ENOATTR is defined to be a
                  synonym for ENODATA in <attr/xattr.h>.)
    
           ENOTSUP
                  Extended attributes are not supported by the filesystem, or  are
                  disabled.
    
           In addition, the errors documented in stat(2) can also occur.
    
    
    

    VERSIONS
