This is exactly what I was doing. I don't want to beat a dead horse
because I've gotten this to work with open/read/write but I'm wondering
about Geoff's suggestion that URL get/put might slow down beause RR has
to parse the file to determine where to append to. The case where I was
slowing WAY down was in joining about 100 files of 1MB each. By the 20th
file it was taking *minutes* to append each file segment.
If you get a chance to use your script with large number of big segments,
I'd be interested to see if you continue to get good performance.
