%creat() function

The %creat() function creates a new host OS file or prepares to rewrite an existing host OS file designated by str for write only.


file.descriptor = %creat(str, mode)


str Name of the file to create.
mode Controls the file mode. Valid values of mode are in the include: mode.h. Combinations of the modes are obtained by adding several elementary modes together.
Note: On D3, files are closed automatically when the FlashBASIC program terminates.


include dm,bp,unix.h mode.h
* Create a local file named myfile
* read and write permissions

Note the usage of the + operator to combine flags, where a regular C program would have used an or.
