fclose (msvcrt)
 
.
Summary
closes a file handle.

C# Signature:

[DllImport("msvcrt.dll", SetLastError=true)]
static extern Int32 fclose(IntPtr file);

VB Signature:

Declare Function fclose Lib "msvcrt.dll" (IntPtr file) As Int32

User-Defined Types:

None.

Notes:

None.

Tips & Tricks:

I could not get the above signature to work, so I altered them slightly and this seems to work better:

[DllImport("msvcrt.dll", CallingConvention = CallingConvention.Cdecl, CharSet = CharSet.Ansi)]
static extern IntPtr fopen(String filename, String mode);
[DllImport("msvcrt.dll", CallingConvention = CallingConvention.Cdecl, CharSet = CharSet.Ansi)]
static extern Int32 fclose(IntPtr file);

Sample Code:

Please add some!

Alternative Managed API:

System.IO.FileStream

Documentation
fclose on MSDN

Please edit this page!

Do you have...

  • helpful tips or sample code to share for using this API in managed code?
  • corrections to the existing content?
  • variations of the signature you want to share?
  • additional languages you want to include?

Select "Edit This Page" on the right hand toolbar and edit it! Or add new pages containing supporting types needed for this API (structures, delegates, and more).
