Because the number of possible file handles is restricted in OS/2 sessions, you should always close every file you've opened as soon as possible. You also need to close a file (and perhaps reopen it again) if you want to call another program to write into or read from this file.
You should only use
rc = <STREAM( filename , "c", "CLOSE" )
to close a file. The other method that is sometimes used, using <LINEOUT or <CHAROUT without the second parameter, is only valid for files to which you have write access (even if you've only read from the file) (?).
