Dear all,

a new version of the File Module is online:

I've just returned to my uncompleted implementation and test suite for this module (the test suite is a lot more work than the implementation...).

I'm hitting problems knowing what to do about BOMs. Under what circumstances should a BOM be written?
Should they be used only with UTF-16, or also with UTF-8?
Should they be written only at the start of the file (i.e. append-X functions have to check whether the file is empty in order to decide whether to write a BOM?)
