Obtains a reference to a file so that you can use the file in a program.
Custom message that appears in the title bar of the file dialog box that appears when you do not wire a value to file path.
Absolute path to the file you want to open.
If you do not wire a value to file path, this node displays a file browser from which you can select a file. If you specify an empty or relative path, this function returns an error.

Opens an existing file.
Replaces an existing file by opening the file and setting its end of file to 0.
Creates a new file.
Opens an existing file or creates a new file if one does not exist.
Creates a new file or replaces a file if it exists. This node replaces a file by opening the file and setting its end of file to 0.

Allows you to write to the returned file.
Error conditions that occur before this node runs.
The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.
Default: no error

Reference to the open file.
If the file cannot be opened, the value of this output is Not A Refnum.
A Boolean that specifies whether the user cancelled the file browser or did not select a replacement in an advisory dialog box.
