// Remove empty files
// Because of the ability to control when different items output independently (i.e.,
// "execute_on_input") it is possible to create an empty file if the solve stops early, such as
// the case when --half-transient is used. Thus, to avoid having empty files laying around the
// following cleans them up. It is not possible to know if anything will be output to the file
// prior to attempting. A long story short, an exodus file with only info records doesn't write
// correctly. Deleting the file here actually doesn't fix this problem, but it seems like poor
// form to leave empty files around.
// It is possible to have an empty file created with the following scenario. By default the
// 'execute_on_input' flag is setup to run on INITIAL. If the 'execute_on' is set to FINAL
// but the simulation stops early (e.g., --half-transient) the Exodus file is created but there
// is no data in it, because of the initial call to write the input data seems to create the file
// but doesn't actually write the data into the solution/mesh is also supplied to the IO object.
// Then if --recover is used this empty file fails to open for appending.
//
// The code below will delete any empty files that exist. Another solution is to set the
// 'execute_on_input' flag to NONE.
