*headdesk* Of course that’s happening. You’re APPENDING to the file, not creating from scratch. Twit.

@grumpysmiffy does the file need an appendectomy?
i’ve been thinking about append only datastructures lately perchance. also how mired in danger doing anything with the filesystem apparently is, so much so that literally nobody gets it right and the fact that computers work at all would seem to be some kind of miracle

@zensaiyuki Certainly a clean-up. Output files have fixed, previously unique, names and code is appending. Works a lot better when I unlink them if they exist, before going any further.
