You can use is open to determine if a stream variable is open. A stream is open if it has been opened or reopened, but is not yet closed.

The following code opens a stream if it is not already open:

  open my-stream as buffer unless my-stream is open

The following code shows two OmniMark stream state tests that use isnt open:
