Batch processing sillyness

Anders Lund
Why does digikam create a empty file when I use a script in batch
processing?????

The script writes an image on its own, and produces NO output.

Please check output before creating empty files!

Kindly,
Anders

All my batch process does, is execute this:
/home/anders/okem/footer.pl $INPUT

The script overwrites $INPUT with a new file. (It generates a graphic
footer with some logos and a text that is based on the image comment,
but looks some data up in a database, and then attaches this to the
bottom of the original. I'm using ImageMagick to do the work)

digikam places an empty file with "_1" attached to the basename. I
don't understand this behavior. Am I supposed to write my file to
STDOUT or something? There are appearently no documentation of the tool.
