.SH SYNTAX
.B #include <open.h>

int \fBopen_append\fP(const char *\fIfilename\fR);
.SH DESCRIPTION
open_append opens the file \fIfilename\fR for appending write-only use
and returns the file handle.  If it does not exist, it will be created
with mode 0600.  If there was an error opening or creating the file,
open_append returns -1 and sets errno accordingly.

All write operations will append after the last byte, regardless of
previous calls to lseek(2) or other processes also appending to the
same file.
