InputFile & PrintFile

Found this info about new Comet32 commands:

PrintFile TheFullPath$ string$
TheFile$ = InputFile(TheFullPath$, excp=FileErr)

If it is a Comet file, I can open it and use a LUN.

If it is a non-Comet file, I can just read it all in one shot or I can write it (print) also in one command.

What I find is that "PrintFile TheFullPath$ string$" does not overwrite the file, but rather append at the end. If I am printing a whole whole file, why would it not overwrite what is there?

Worst, there is no "ClearFile TheFullPath$". Looks like ClearFile is an easy Erase/Create in Comet.

So how do I re-write (PrintFile) a file that I read all (InputFile)?

This is not a CometFile!

Tested on Comet32 2014.491 on Windows 7 x64.
