Description

• 

The Close(file) command closes the specified file, which is assumed to have been opened implicitly by a FileTools[Text] function or by Open.

• 

The Close function does not return anything.

• 

Closing a file ensures that all data is written to disk.

• 

When exiting Maple by using the quit, done, or stop command, all open files are automatically closed.

• 

Closing a file that is not open raises an error.
