Searching for "file" in that page doesn't reveal any helpful 
information. Perhaps it's me, but I rarely can find something useful in 
the wiki, even if it might be there, somewhere :-(

I've been searching in the RTL.CHM help, don't know about document and 
chapter :-(

IMO the overview topics should be listed as such, not in the context of 
a specific unit. Delphi help offers both "routines by category" and "by 
unit". The FPC "Reference for package 'rtl'" doesn't list any topics. 
I'll try to add a list of overview topics, as soon as I have some time
