=abstract The file filesys.h contains file handling primitive functions. The reason for this module is to have all system specific file handling functions to be separated in a single file. All other modules use these functions that behave the same on Win32 platform as well as on UNIX. =end These functions are to be used by other parts of the program. They implement system specific operations, and other levels need not care about these system specific stuff.
The function names are prefixed usually with file_, some are prefixed with sys_.
