Default empty a file's contents in perl

Code:
open (FILE, '>>crmpicco.csv') or die "Cannot open file 'crmpicco.csv'\n";    
    # write to file
    print FILE "$csvstr\n";
close (FILE)
does anyone know of a way to empty the file's contents before I write the csvstr to it? i dont want to append to what is already there.

found out that you change the '>>' to '>'
eg.

Code:
open (FILE, '>crmpicco.csv') or die "Cannot open file 'crmpicco.csv'\n";    
    # write to file    
    print FILE "$csvstr\n";
close (FILE);
