[ file->open ]


Opens a new connection to a file. Requires the name and path to a file as a parameter. Optional parameters may include an open mode and read mode, as in the [File] method. The open mode and read mode set in the initial [File] method call are used by default.

  • Syntax
File Variable->Open('/folder/file.txt')
  • Beginner

To open a new file:

Use the [File->Open] method. The following example closes the connection to the myfile.txt file, and opens a new connection to a file named otherfile.txt.


local(File = File('myfile.txt', File_OpenRead, File_ModeChar)
#File->Open('otherfile.txt', File_OpenReadWrite)
