Do you need to use normal file I/O?  If so, then System.IO.FileStream
and System.IO.TextReader/System.IO.TextWriter should suffice.

Or do you need to use the real fopen/fwrite calls, e.g. for
compatibility/interop with another app?  If so, there's
Mono.Unix.Native.Stdlib.fopen(), Mono.Unix.Native.Stdlib.fwrite(), and
Mono.Unix.StdioFileStream, all in Mono.Posix.dll:
