Contains constants for specifying how the OS should open a file. These will control whether you overwrite a file, open an existing file, or some combination thereof.
To append to a file, use Append (which maps to OpenOrCreate then we seek to the end of the file). To truncate a file or create it if it doesn't exist, use Create.
public enum FileMode
