This extension exposes low-level C file functions (stdio.h) to you under file_raw_ prefix.

These allow for buffer-styled operations on files, as well as a few extras (e.g. flushing changes to a file without costly close-reopen, or reading X characters from a file as a string).

Also, in the name of performance and not spending too much time on a free extension, it does not do too much error checking, so you might be able to crash your game if you try hard enough.

I am trying to append the file and continue writing. But when using:
I don't get to the end of the file. Tested to seek just 1 byte from start and that works. But I can't seek from relative position. Whenever I seek it start from the start of the file. file_raw_seek do return 1.

Tested to manually seek to the end with:

var seek_pos=0;
while (file_raw_eof(a_file)=false)

But it becomes a infinite loop.
