f = 0
_doserrno = 5 (EIO)
errno = 13 (EACCES)
>From the MS documentation:
Permission denied. The file's permission setting does not allow the
specified access. This error signifies that an attempt was made to
access a file (or, in some cases, a directory) in a way that is
incompatible with the file's attributes.
For example, the error can occur when an attempt is made to read
from a file that is not open, to open an existing read-only file for
writing, or to open a directory instead of a file. Under MS-DOS
operating system versions 3.0 and later, EACCES may also indicate a
locking or sharing violation.
The error can also occur in an attempt to rename a file or
directory or to remove an existing directory.
EIO = Input/output error
EACCES = Permission denied
