File - Write

Table of Contents


This page is about the write operation performed by the OS file system.

A write file io operation permits to write data in a file by block of data called cluster (as opposed to a sector for a disk)

Before writing into a file, you need to get a file descriptor.

The operating system generally buffer writes request in memory. Therefore a write request returns before data has actually been stored in the mass storage device.
