Of course, in addition to OPEN, many people find the 
WITH-OPEN-FILE form to be extremely handy, since it saves
one the trouble of having to remember to close the stream...

(with-open-file (stream "test" :direction :io :if-exists :overwrite
                          :element-type '(unsigned-byte 8))
    (write-byte 255 stream))
