Hello! Could someone explain me below? I didn’t understand one moment. Here

sort deserts.txt | uniq > **uniq-deserts.txt**

the file uniq-deserts.txt is created during the command execution or this file was created before and command just re-writes it’s content with the sorted deserts?
thank you!

excuse my ignorance but it says i have to type the command after the shell prompt. how do i do the shell prompt???
