for a long time i have been preformatting all my avi's
with a line just like the one you use in
file_preformat(). I've tried to work out why my files
were never sent there, and why they always lost their

it's probably a lot of work, but i'm requesting an
option to see all the output in the terminal instead of
sending it to null. maybe a --debug flag?
it's a very very good thing you've done, thanks.
