1) Assumes the arguments are what they are (e.g., file names)
2) Assumes reads are less than 1000 bases
3) Assumes reads are strictly header line followed by a single line of bases.
4) Assumes reads are all the same length
5) Assumes that the right cut position is not greater than the length of the reads.

I'd put, up-front, the assumptions so that people are not bitten by them. I'd also do more error checking.
