From madison@transmeta.com

I open a file to append, then try to seek() to the beginning of the file​:

--------------------------------------------------
open(FILE,">>some_file") || die("Fie!\n");
print "Position​: ",tell(FILE),"\n";
seek(FILE,0,0);
print "Position​: ",tell(FILE),"\n";
print FILE "Should be on the first line\n";
close(FILE);
--------------------------------------------------

The seek() doesn't do anything, though the tell() claims that it did.
(Run this a few times and look at "some_file" and watch the tell() values)
