If you are getting output from stderr or stdlog you won't get a redirect 
that way. Are you positive the output is stdout?

Also, I see a.out, it makes me think of a local file not in the path. 
I'm guessing you just left that off for demo purposes, but if it really 
were a.out and not in the local file path, then foo.txt would be empty 
because it didn't find a.out.
