For most file systems, a program initializes access to a file in a file system using the open system call. This allocates resources associated to the file (the file descriptor), and returns a handle that the process will use to refer to that file. In some cases the open is performed by the first access. The same file may be opened simultaneously by several processes, and even by the same process (resulting in several file descriptors for the same file) depending on the file organization and filesystem. Operations on the descriptors such as moving the file pointer or closing it are independent (they do not affect other descriptors for the same file). Operations on the file (like a write) can be seen by operations on the other descriptors (a posterior read can read the written data). During the open, the filesystem may allocate memory for buffers (or it may wait until the first operation). The absolute filename is resolved
