Closing file descriptors


Hi,

I deleted a file owned by a running process. The file is still open
and the descriptor exists in /proc/<pid>/fd.
I see data are still written to the hard drive but there is no file name.
Is it possible to close the file descriptor of the deleted file so the data are no more written to the disc without exiting the process which created the file?

thanks

Nik
