Yes. But my Pascal reference is Assign - Reset/Rewrite, Close. I still have
difficulties appending "File" after Assign and Close :-P Now that I think
of it, I never tried to do a new AssignFile after the Reset/Rewrite step,
but I would be much surprised if it flushed and closed the first file
handle. Anyhow, this is not a real problem as long as it is documented, and
the effect of changing the name is documented in the wiki.
