mclose

closes an opened file

Calling Sequence

err = mclose([fd])
mclose('all')

Arguments

fd

a scalar: the fd parameter returned by the function mopen is used as a file descriptor.

err

a scalar: an error indicator.

Description

mclose must be used to close a file opened by mopen. If fd is omitted mclose closes the last opend file.

mclose('all') closes all files opened by file('open',..) or mopen.

Be careful with this use of mclose because when it is used inside a Scilab script file, it also closes the script and Scilab will not execute commands written after mclose('all').

Examples

fd = mopen(TMPDIR + filesep() + 'mclose_tst','wt');
mclose(TMPDIR + filesep() + 'mclose_tst');

fd=mopen('SCI/etc/scilab.start','r')
mgetl(fd,10)
mclose(fd)
