Associates a C run-time file descriptor with an existing operating-system file handle.
int _open_osfhandle ( intptr_t osfhandle, int flags );
- Operating-system file handle.
- Types of operations allowed.
If successful, _open_osfhandle returns a C run-time file descriptor. Otherwise, it returns –1.
The _open_osfhandle function allocates a C run-time file descriptor and associates it with the operating-system file handle specified by osfhandle. The flags argument is an integer expression formed from one or more of the manifest constants defined in FCNTL.H. When two or more manifest constants are used to form the flags argument, the constants are combined with the bitwise-OR operator ( | ).
The FCNTL.H file defines the following manifest constants:
- Positions file pointer to end of file before every write operation.
- Opens file for reading only.
- Opens file in text (translated) mode.
