  • path: The path of the target file.

  • flags: Flags to be passed to open().

  • mode: An optional mode to be passed to open() when creating a file.

This function shall create a new mongoc_stream_file_t after opening the underlying file with open() or the platform equivalent.


NULL on failure, otherwise a newly allocated mongoc_stream_file_t that should be freed with mongoc_stream_destroy() when no longer in use.

errno is set upon failure.
