NAME

bkill - unlink a file

SYNOPSIS

#include <basic/string.h>

bkill(str)
struct string *str;

DESCRIPTION

Bkill unlinks the file given by the string pointed to by str.  Unlinking a file is not the same as removing it unless the file has no other links and is not open by any process.  Directories normally can not be removed with this function (see unlink(2)).  It is not an error to call for the removal of a file while it is open.  The removal is performed when the file is closed. 

This function implements the KILL statement.
