moving / deleting files while using them?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on November 17, 2006 06:52 AM
quote from TA:
"When you rm a file, you're removing the link that points to its inode, but not the inode itself; other processes (such as your audio player) might still have it open"

as per subject, this indicates it's possible to rm a file while it's in use or am i misreading this?
can s.b. explain pls?
