More on open later, when talking about the temporary files problem. Thus, the program becomes:. Christophr programmer has to control the way the data is accessed, what ensures his application to manage coherent data when reading and it blaeas not dangerous for other processes when writing, as soon as the environment is properly administrated.

Very often a program needs to temporarily store data in an external file.

The most usual case is inserting a record in the middle of a sequential ordered file, what implies to make a copy of the original file in a temporary file, while adding new information. We could, for instance, consider the case of a mail transport software blaexs sendmail.
