How make FILE* from HANDLE in WinApi?

Is there easy way to create FILE* from WinApi HANDLE which points to one end of pipe?
Something like we do in unix:

fdopen(fd,<mode>);

Answer

You can do this but you have to do it in two steps. First, call _open_osfhandle() to get a C run-time file descriptor from a Win32 HANDLE value, then call _fdopen() to get a FILE* object from the file descriptor.
