 +======Synopsis:​======
 +$close(<​file descriptor>​)
 +
 +======Technical:​======
 +This function unbinds the given file descriptor (previously returned by
 +the $[[open]]() function) from the underlying file, causing the file to be
 +committed to disk if necessary. ​ An error is returned if it is passed a
 +file descriptor not produced by an $[[open]]() call.
 +
 +======Practical:​======
 +This function is used to close a file that was opened for reading or
 +writing by $[[open]](). ​ Data corruption may result if the client exits
 +before all open files are closed.
 +
 +======Returns:​======
 +<​file>​
 +-1   error
 + ​0 ​  file closed successfully
 +</​file>​
