4.44 _sys_open()

Defined in rt_sys.h, the _sys_open() function opens a file.


FILEHANDLE _sys_open(const char *name, int openmode);


The _sys_open() function is required by fopen() and freopen(). These functions in turn are required if any file input/output function is to be used.
The openmode parameter is a bitmap whose bits mostly correspond directly to the ISO mode specification. Target-dependent extensions are possible, but freopen() must also be extended.


The return value is –1 if an error occurs.
