    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.
