Close a low level file in FoxPro
Use the FCLOSE
function to close a file that has been opened with
This will attempt to save your changes. It will return .T. if the
file can be closed successfully and .F. if it cannot.
The CLOSE ALL command will close all
low level files.
A file handle is essential for these low level functions and it is usual
to hold it in a local variable. You must close the file before this
variable goes out of scope. Once the file has been opened (or created)
it will remain open and locked to other users until it is closed.
The file will remain open even if the variable holding its handle has
been overwritten or released. If you wait until you have lost the value
of the handle then you will not be able to use
to close that specific file.
