Creating files/folders

If I "open file <filepath>" for write" and the file doesn't exist LC
creates it.  But what happens if an error occurs? For example, the file
path includes a folder that doesn't exist, or permissions don't allow the
file to be created.  I know the file doesn't get created but how do I check
for an error?

Similarly with "create folder <pathtofolder>", how do I check for errors?
