file in C

what happen if I open a file and forget to close it? fopen(fp,”r”); but I don't write fclose(fp);

Umm, not familiar with C, but in higher level languages, I think a read-mode file either just sits in the RAM uselessly until the program terminates, or the garbage collector gets it when it sees it isn’t going to be used again.
