RandomAccessFile class Null safety

Random access to the data in a file.

RandomAccessFile objects are obtained by calling the open method on a File object.

A RandomAccessFile has both asynchronous and synchronous methods. The asynchronous methods all return a Future whereas the synchronous methods will return the result directly, and block the current isolate until the result is ready.

At most one asynchronous method can be pending on a given RandomAccessFile instance at the time. If another asynchronous method is called when one is already in progress, a FileSystemException is thrown.

If an asynchronous method is pending, it is also not possible to call any synchronous methods. This will also throw a FileSystemException.
