Writeln! value used here after move

Hi, i try this fragment into function that return io::Result<()>

    let mut movies_txt = File::create("/home/pichibw/premieres.txt");
    writeln!(movies_txt?, "aaa\n");
    writeln!(movies_txt?, "bbb\n");

let mut movies_txt = File::create("/home/pichibw/premieres.txt");
| ------------------- move occurs because movies_txt has type Result<File, std::io::Error>, which does not implement the Copy trait
794 | writeln!(movies_txt?, "aaa\n");
| ---------------- movies_txt moved due to this method call
795 | writeln!(movies_txt?, "bbb\n");
| ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ value used here after move
note: branch takes ownership of the receiver self, which moves movies_txt

The ? operator consumes the expression before it to return the Ok/Some variant. Moving the ? to the creation of the file should fix this:

let mut movies_txt = File::create("/home/pichibw/premieres.txt")?;
writeln!(movies_txt, "aaa\n");
writeln!(movies_txt, "bbb\n");

(Plus a ? on every write.)
