It is the var used by filefindNext so it knows what search to use

$searchhandle = Filefindfirst ("*.*")
Filefindnext ($searchhandle)

It specifies wat search so you could do many.

it is a sequence of numbers that represent a specific instance of something. So a handle to a window would be referring to that window.

EDIT:

LOL, Oh: that kind of handle

It's a bit of data that some functions use so that when you run the same function again or a related function, it can "pick up where it left off". It's not something you have to know what it is...just give it the variable name you stored the return from the initial function in.

Just like sccrstvn93 showed you. That variable can be any name, but the handle is the data that the variable contains...send the function requiring the handle the variable, and it will be able to get the handle it needs.
