Question"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" - so what is the BEST name for "open_dev" function return? Pin

Just experienced an interesting behavior of my code AFTER getting cute and using "socket" for name of the return from
hci_open_dev
.
The particular return was really described as "socket" - connection between processor and bluetooth "adapter" - but was originally named "sock".

After much search I realized that "hci" API names the return
"device descriptor"

and other known "opening device" function calls it "file descriptor".

Then I discovered "file handle " !
Is "handle" an ancient "windows OS" term ?

After this unpleasant experience I'll definitely NOT name anything "socket" , but I am curious what name would be really descriptive ( no pun intended ) for the return of generic "open_x" function ?

dev_descriptor = hci_open_dev(dev_id);


And if you feel it is a matter of personal preference, you do not need to state that.
Maybe it is covered in today's "ANSI C standards" - if there is such a thing.

Cheers
