Summary
The SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES structure contains the security descriptor for an object and specifies whether the handle retrieved by specifying this structure is inheritable. This structure provides security settings for objects created by various functions, such as CreateFile, CreatePipe, CreateProcess, or RegCreateKeyEx.

This is the maximum number of characters, usually including a null terminator, of a standard fully-pathed filename for most Windows API functions that operate on filenames (and a few .NET ones, such as Assembly.LoadFrom). Those that fill a buffer with a filename, such as GetTempFileName, expect a buffer of exactly this length. Some functions, such as CreateFile, can be made to accept longer filenames by using the "\\?\" syntax.

You can use the IntPtr from Createfile with FileStream. This is usefull for opening devices such as Com1:, Lpt1: and Prn.

Note that on win98, mapping the parameters to FileAccess and FileShare will cause CreateFileA to fail. I found this out the hard way, banging my head against a very slow win98 machine across an even slow connection. Instead use the EFileAccess, and EFileShare enumeration constants that match the windows constants ( as mentioned earlier in the article ).

hSection is a handle to a file mapping object that the function will use to create the DIB and can be NULL. If hSection is not NULL, it must be a handle to a file mapping object created by calling the CreateFileMapping function (otherwise CreateDIBSection will fail). Moreover, the CreateDIBSection function will locate the bitmap’s bit values at offset dwOffset in the file mapping object referred to by hSection. An application can retrieve the hSection handle by calling the GetObject function with the HBITMAP returned by CreateDIBSection.
