STANDARDS These signals conform to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1990 (“POSIX.1”), with the exception of SIGTRAP, SIGEMT, SIGBUS, SIGSYS, SIGURG, SIGIO, SIGXCPU, SIGXFSZ, SIGVTALRM, SIGPROF, SIGWINCH, and SIGINFO which are Berkeley extensions (available on most BSD−derived systems), and SIGPWR which comes from System V. HISTORY SIGPWR was introduced in NetBSD 1.4. NOTES The current NetBSD kernel never generates the SIGPWR signal.

STICKY (7) NetBSD Miscellaneous Information Manual STICKY (7) NAME sticky —Description of the ‘sticky’ (S_ISVTX) bit functionality DESCRIPTION Aspecial file mode, called the sticky bit (mode S_ISVTX), is used to indicate special treatment for directories. See chmod(2) or the file /usr/include/sys/stat.h STICKY FILES For regular files, the use of mode S_ISVTX is reserved and can be set only by the super-user. NetBSD does not currently treat regular files that have the sticky bit set specially, but this behavior might change in the future. STICKY DIRECTORIES Adirectory whose “sticky bit” is set becomes a directory in which the deletion of files is restricted. Afile in asticky directory may only be removed orrenamed by a user if the user has write permission for the directory and the user is the owner of the file, the owner of the directory, orthe super-user. This feature is usefully applied to directories such as /tmp which must be publicly writable but should deny users the license to arbitrarily delete or rename each others’ files. Any user may create a sticky directory. See chmod(1) for details about modifying file modes. HISTORY The sticky bit first appeared in V7, and this manual page appeared in section 8. Its initial use was to mark sharable executables that were frequently used so that they would stay in swap after the process exited. Sharable executables were compiled in a special way so their text and read-only data could be shared amongst processes. vi(1) and sh(1) were such executables. This is where the term “sticky” comes from - the program would stick around in swap, and it would not have to befetched again from the file system. Of course as long as there was a copy inthe swap area, the file was marked busy so it could not be overwritten. On V7 this meant that the file could not be removed either, because busy executables could not be removed, but this restriction was lifted in BSD releases. To replace such executables was a cumbersome process. One had first to remove the sticky bit, then execute the binary so that the copy from swap was flushed, overwrite the executable, and finally reset the sticky bit. Later, onSunOS 4, the sticky bit got an additional meaning for files that had the bit set and were not executable: read and write operations from and to those files would go directly to the disk and bypass the buffer cache. This was typically used on swap files for NFS clients on an NFS server, sothat swap I/O generated by the clients on the servers would not evict useful data from the server’s buffer cache. BUGS Neither open(2) nor mkdir(2) will create a file with the sticky bit set. NetBSD 3.0 February 5, 2007 1
