Folks, I have posted MI code at
http://code.midrange.com/9176a9360c.html that:
- Deletes file mi-ifs-file.txt from the current directory
- Creates a new file by same name in the current directory
- Writes a line if all successful
- Closes that file

It creates the file just fine, except that there are no permissions
(flags ----------). I am absolutely convinced that this is my error
(I used the same concept in RPG and it worked great), but my eyes
don't see where I might have gone wrong. Would some kind soul mind
steering me in the right direction?

The all-upper-case labels/names are for convenience of debugging. If
there is a way to make the debugger work with mixed-case names, I'd
really like to know about it.

This is an extract of a much larger source, dummied up to make it
usable for this topic.

Probably not if same test in RPG did not experience the issue...

Perhaps an O_INHERITMODE flag issue due to directory permissions? Refer to rzamv.pdf or equivalent docs w/ heading "The integrated file system approach to security" such as:
