Why the filenameOpen switch? I always use:

IF %open(whatever); CLOSE whatever; ENDIF;

I guess the switch would be more efficient as one wouldn't have to go
through the %bif's code. Is there any other reason/advantage?

I only want to close the file if it actually opened it in that particular procedure.

If the file was opened by some other procedure in the module, I don't want to close it when the other procedure is expecting it to be open.
