[ file->close ]


The [file->close] method closes the connection to a file that has been opened by a [file] object. This method should be called whenever a file operation is finished.

  • Syntax
local(f) = #file(...)

Display the contents of a file on a web page

The code below reads the contents of a file and outputs it to a web page encoding the line breaks as '<br />' tags. I have the call to the [file->close] method in a [handle] block because I want that code to be executed if either the code fails or succeeds to run.


local(my_file) = file('test.txt')
handle => { #my_file->close }


"Great Scott!"
"I know. This is heavy."
