Linux is full of really useful commands, and I discover new ones all the time. Today I learned this:
$ > filename
Why is this useful? In my case, <filename> already existed but I wanted it to remain and be completely empty. I toyed with echo and touch but that left a space in the file or took too many keystrokes (I'm lazy):
$ echo '' > filename $ rm filename; touch filename
This simple command left me with exactly what I needed.
So, what really useful command did you learn today?
Very intersting. Today I learned how to use the oc subcommand edit. You can edit a YAML or JSON resource with edit. It prompts a Vim interface to edit and commit the changes :)
