 FILE Pointer (stream)
 shows on a given file
 The data type FILE is a structure that contains information about a file
 or specified data stream. It includes such information as a file descriptor,
 current position, status flags, and more. It is most often used as a pointer
 to a file type, as file I/O functions predominantly take pointers as
 parameters, not the structures themselves (see example below).

C Sourcecode Example

#include <stdio.h> /* including standard library */
//#include <windows.h> /* uncomment this for Windows */
int main (void)
    FILE *filestream;
    if (filestream == NULL)
        perror("cannot open file");
    return 0;
