clone - duplicate a fid

Tclone tag [2] fid [2] newfid [2]
Rclone tag [2] fid [2]


The Tclone request carries as arguments an existing fid and a proposed newfid (which must not be in use) that the client wishes to associate with the same file as fid. The fid must be valid in the current session and must not have been opened for I/O by an open or create message. After a successful clone, and before any subsequent messages, fid and newfid are indistinguishable.

Entry Points

A clone message is generated by any system call that evaluates a path name and by a read of a union directory.
