    The file is opened, the data is streamed to it, the file is closed. If you want to know to do it, there are plenty of tutorials online.

    i dont understand what they are used for and how they work.
    Seriously? They are used to store stuff on disk. They work by storing stuff on disk. The OS takes care of the details. If you have a specific question you can't find in a tutorial, please ask it.
