"A directory whose `sticky bit' is set becomes an append-only directory, or, more accurately, a directory in which the deletion of files is restricted. A file in a sticky directory may only be removed or renamed 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, or the 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."
Unix directory access permissions say that if a user has write permission on a directory, she can rename or remove files there–even files that don't belong to her. Many newer versions of Unix have a way to stop that. The owner of a directory can set its sticky bit. The only people who can rename or remove any file in that directory are the file's owner, the directory's owner, and the superuser.
