The stream is positioned at the beginning of the file. .It Dq Li w Truncate file to zero length or create compressed file for writing. The stream is positioned at the beginning of the file. .El .Pp Any created files will have mode .Pf \\*q Dv S_IRUSR \&| .Dv S_IWUSR \&| .Dv S_IRGRP \&| .Dv S_IWGRP \&| .Dv S_IROTH \&| .Dv S_IWOTH Ns \\*q .Pq Li 0666 , as modified by the process' umask value (see .Xr umask 2 ) . .Pp Files may only be read or written. Seek operations are not allowed. .Pp The .Fa bits argument, if non-zero, is set to the bits code limit. If zero, the default is 16. See .Fn compress 1 for more information. .Sh RETURN VALUES Upon successful completion .Fn zopen returns a .Tn FILE pointer. Otherwise, .Dv NULL is returned and the global variable .Va errno is set to indicate the error. .Sh ERRORS .Bl -tag -width [EINVAL] .It Bq Er EINVAL The .Fa mode or .Fa bits arguments specified to .Fn zopen were invalid. .It Bq Er EFTYPE The compressed file starts with an invalid header, or the compressed file is compressed with more bits than can be handled. .El .Pp The .Fn zopen function may also fail and set .Va errno for any of the errors specified for the routines .Xr fopen 3 or .Xr funopen 3 . .Sh SEE ALSO .Xr compress 1 , .Xr fopen 3 , .Xr funopen 3 .Sh HISTORY The .Nm zopen function first appeared in .Bx 4.4 . .Sh BUGS The .Fn zopen function may not be portable to systems other than .Bx .
