Sorry for the triviality of this question, but as long as a process
has a file open, doesn't it have access to it? Even if the file
reference in the directory has been removed?
I don't think removing a file using "rm" actually removes the file
descriptor. You're only removing an entry in the directory file that
points to the inode. The file descriptor is still valid until your
program closes the file.
