Tcl_GetOpenFile - Get a standard IO File * handle from a channel.
Tcl_GetOpenFile(interp, string, write, checkUsage, filePtr)
Tcl_Interp *interp (in) Tcl interpreter from which file handle is to be obtained.
Tcl_GetOpenFile takes as argument a file identifier of the form returned by the open command and returns at *filePtr a pointer to the FILE structure for the file. The write argument indicates whether the FILE pointer will be used for reading or writing. In some cases, such as a channel that connects to a pipeline of subprocesses, different FILE pointers will be returned for reading and writing. Tcl_GetOpenFile normally returns TCL_OK. If an error occurs in Tcl_GetOpenFile (e.g. string didn't make any sense or checkUsage was set and the file wasn't opened for the access specified by write) then TCL_ERROR is returned and interp >result will contain an error message. In the current implementation checkUsage is ignored and consistency checks are always performed.
