I am reading The C Programming Language (2nd Edition). On page 157 and 158 the author gives a code snippet of
fopen in the Unix system. At the end of the snippet the author added:
In particular, our
fopendoes not recognize the "b" that signals binary access, since that is meaningless on UNIX systems, nor the "+" that permits both reading and writing.
Why does the author say it's meaningless? (The "b" and "+" mentioned here are file access modes)
