_get_osfhandle

Retrieves the operating-system file handle that is associated with the specified file descriptor.

intptr_t _get_osfhandle( 
   int fd 
);

fd

An existing file descriptor.

An operating-system file handle if fd is valid. Otherwise, the invalid parameter handler is invoked, as described in Parameter Validation. If execution is allowed to continue, this function returns INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE (–1) and sets errno to EBADF, indicating an invalid file handle.

To close a file opened with _get_osfhandle, call _close. The underlying handle is also closed by a call to _close, so it is not necessary to call the Win32 function CloseHandle on the original handle.
