Patched ùan page says:

              Same as iflag but for the call to open(2) on the output file.
              The default value is creat.  The default or specified value is
              or'ed with rdwr for a first attempt, then on failure with wronly
              on a second attempt. In both case, trunc is automatically added
              if none of oseek, seek, or conv=notrunc operands are used,
