Abandon a file

Similar to DOS CLOSE, except that any header, or data, or directory data yet to be written to disk is discarded. This routine should only be used to force a file closed in the event that DOS CLOSE is unable to close the file (for example, if the media is damaged or permanently changed or removed).
