In Unix and Unix-like computer operating systems, a file descriptor (FD, less frequently
fildes) is a unique identifier (handle) for a file or other input/output resource, such as a
pipe or network socket.

File descriptors typically have non-negative integer values, with negative values being
reserved to indicate “no value” or error conditions.1
