 *  followed by a sequence of write() commands to store information,
 *  and finalize it using end(). 
 *  Later on you locate the information
 *  with seek() using the handle obtained with alloc(), and then use a
 *  sequence of read() calls to read the information back. 
 *  If no longer needed the storage space can be freed using release().
 *  The store will dynamically grow the file on disk if needed.
