    Cool FILE pointers

    How do u pass file pointers by reference. I want to use a function to open a file but, I have trouble doing this, because once it gets out of the function the pointer isn't pointing to the file anymore. Can someone please help.

    Code:
    FILE * Function(FILE *fptr, filename)
    {
       return fptr = fopen(filename, "r");
    }
