$$\text{FileClose}$$¶

You can use the $$\text{FileClose}$$ function to close an open file.

You can use the \fileclose backslash command to insert this function.

The following variants of this function are available:

• $$\text{boolean } \text{FileClose} \left ( \text{<file number>} \right )$$

The $$\text{<file number>}$$ is an integer value supplied by the previously called $$\text{FileOpen}$$ function. The function returns true on success or false on error.

The $$\text{FileClose}$$ function is part of a suite of low level I/O functions provided by Aion that are intended to be used together. Other functions in this suite include:

The general process for reading or writing a file is to open the file using the $$\text{FileOpenRead}$$ or $$\text{FileOpenWrite}$$ functions, call the $$\text{FileRead}\ldots$$, $$\text{FileWrite}\ldots$$ functions, and, if needed, the $$\text{FileSeek}$$ function. Once you’re finished with the file, you should call the $$\text{FileClose}$$ function.

Figure 134 shows several basic low level file operations.
