The above points out the fact that you havent said enough about what
you are doing - we dont know what language you are using, or OS even.
"wb" vs "w" doesnt make sense in Unix for example.
I seem to remember I had one problem the first time I implemented
bencoding. I forget what it was, but I do remember that doing a hexdump
and comparing it against another programs output made it obvious in
a couple of seconds - just find where your output differs.
