I have had this happen to me once: Encoding of a .wav file was interrupted
somehow, so an incomplete .flac flie was generated. I accidentally ran a
decode on that .flac file, which wiped out the original .wav file.
I suggest that flac adopt one of the following to handle the situation that
an output file is specified with -o or implied, and the output file already
1. rename the existing output file by appending _001 or something like that.
2. add a flag like --warn-overwirte-output-file , which will prompt the
user for the overwrite. I can easily add the flag to my batch file.
