Hi, I am trying to create an erlang program that takes a binary trace file
and converts it into normal text.

My question is, how can i write a bunch of terms to a file. Here is how my
code looks like, but using different terms (in string representation) and
this compiles, runs, but produces an empty file. Am I missing something


write(WriteFile) ->
   {ok, WriteDescr} = file:open(WriteFile, [raw, write]),
   Terms = ["one","two","three","four","five"],
   Writer=fun(Term) -> file:write(WriteDescr, Term) end,
   lists:foreach(Writer, Terms).
