    The -e checks for the existence of a file, not writability. So the file test in question won't guarantee that your file can be opened for appending.

      The file is open for appending. I am writing to it.
      13132HU.fa,13132HD.fa,13132Ltvec_small.FA 13132HU.fa,13132HD.fa,13132Ltvec_small.FA 13132HU.fa,13132HD.fa,13132Ltvec_small.FA
      Those strings are being appended to the file.
      I want the contents of these files, not the strings
      of the file names.
