FOP_NEW (#ch, name) or
|Location||Toolkit II, THOR XVI|
This function, together with its companions FOPEN, FOP_IN, FOP_DIR and FOP_OVER, is designed to allow you to access files safely without causing errors which force a program to stop. This function is the complement to OPEN_NEW and returns the same values and suffers from the same problem as FOPEN. If the specified file already exists, you are asked whether you want to over-write the existing file. An error (-8) is returned if you press N, and error (-20) is returned if the disk is read only.
