This is what doesn't make sense to me. For the procedure to be able to overwrite what the bang wrote, it means that it knows what was in the file before the bang occurred, which shouldn't be happening as the "io.open" hasn't been executed yet...

No, I think the procedure can overwrite the content of the file, even if it doesn't know its content.
