#include "smtlib.h"
lazy_open (char *path, int flags)


Calls the standard open() function without blocking. Returns a file handle when the call succeeds, else returns -1 and sets errno to the cause of the error. The file is always opened in binary mode, and you must process control characters yourself. If the call would block, returns -1, sets errno to EAGAIN, and calls recycle module() to re-execute the current dialog module automatically. You can override this behavious by calling recycle module (FALSE) after the return. Sets the global variable "io_completed" to TRUE if the i/o access completed, with or without an error.


    handle_input  = lazy_open (filename, O_RDONLY);
    handle_output = lazy_open (filename, O_WRONLY | O_CREAT | O_TRUNC);
    handle_append = lazy_open (filename, O_WRONLY | O_CREAT | O_APPEND);
    if (io_completed && handle < 0)
        have error on file
