In https://latexref.xyz/_005copenin-_0026-_005copenout.html
it is written:

> Open a file for reading material, or for writing it. The number must be
> between 0 and 15, as in \openin3 (in LuaLaTeX number can be between 0
> and 255).

David Carlisle pointed out this 0 and 255 range for LuaTeX is
incorrect, and gave a test program.

To quote David Carlisle, "0-127 is the range".
