how to use this command "touch keyboard.txt" ---- It is exercise 8/9


Hi Xddark999,

The touch command creates a new file inside the working directory. It takes in a filename as an argument
- Learn the Command Line > Navigation > touch

You type the command you want to run in the black box with the blinky white cursor (the command line :wink:).

If that doesn't answer your question, would you mind being a little more specific as to what you need help with?


Actually the touch command was really intended as a way to update timestamps on files.

Yes it can also create files, but that was its main purpose when it was created.
