In the first command, is there actually anything in file "met", or
is it just an empty file?

If there's no (readable) met data in the input file, then the
first command will create open file "met" for writing immediately,
but then nothing gets written to it, so it would end up empty.
Then using the second command on the same input file, the -tbin
logic only opens a file when it encounters some data (obs, nav, met)
and then opens for writing the appropriate file if it hasn't been
done yet for the time period of the data.
