 *	isc_file_open*() open the file in text mode in Windows. 
 *
 * Notes:
 *\li	'template' is a reserved work in C++.  If you want to complain
 *	about the spelling of 'templet', first look it up in the
 *	Merriam-Webster English dictionary. (http://www.m-w.com/)
 *
 *\li	This function works by using the template to generate file names.
 *	The template must be a writable string, as it is modified in place.
 *	Trailing X characters in the file name (full file name on Unix,
 *	basename on Win32 -- eg, tmp-XXXXXX vs XXXXXX.tmp, respectively)
 *	are replaced with ASCII characters until a non-existent filename
 *	is found.  If the template does not include pathname information,
 *	the files in the working directory of the program are searched.
 *
 *\li	isc_file_mktemplate is a good, portable way to get a template.
 *
 * Requires:
 *\li	'fp' is non-NULL and '*fp' is NULL.
 *
 *\li	'template' is non-NULL, and of a form suitable for use by
 *	the system as described above.
 *
 * Ensures:
 *\li	If result is #ISC_R_SUCCESS:
 *		*fp points to an stream opening in stdio's "w+" mode.
 *
 *\li	If result is not #ISC_R_SUCCESS:
 *		*fp is NULL.
 *
 *		No file is open.  Even if one was created (but unable
 *		to be reopened as a stdio FILE pointer) then it has been
 *		removed.
 *
 *\li	This function does *not* ensure that the template string has not been
 *	modified, even if the operation was unsuccessful.
 *
 * Returns:
 *\li	#ISC_R_SUCCESS
 *		Success.
 *\li	#ISC_R_EXISTS
 *		No file with a unique name could be created based on the
 *		template.
 *\li	#ISC_R_INVALIDFILE
