open

Synopsis:
 
int open(const char *pathname, int flags);
int open(const char *pathname, int flags, mode_t mode);
Request:

Fopen,pathptr/len,flags,mode

flags is the bitwise OR of the following values:

O_CREAT

If the file does not exist it will be created. The host rules apply as far as file ownership and time stamps are concerned.

O_EXCL

When used with O_CREAT, if the file already exists it is an error and open() fails.

O_TRUNC

If the file already exists and the open mode allows writing (O_RDWR or O_WRONLY is given) it will be truncated to zero length.

O_APPEND

The file is opened in append mode.

O_RDONLY

The file is opened for reading only.

O_WRONLY

The file is opened for writing only.

O_RDWR

The file is opened for reading and writing.

Other bits are silently ignored.

mode is the bitwise OR of the following values:

S_IRUSR

User has read permission.

S_IWUSR

User has write permission.

S_IRGRP

Group has read permission.

S_IWGRP

S_IROTH
