echo >> /tmp/your_file

Problem solved.

And I truly agree with Optimus that more effort could be put into finding one's own solution, but on the other hand, some people don't care why something works - they think they'll never use it again.

Oh well - job security, I suppose.

hey, I did try. I looked in the info file. I looked in the man file. I looked and READ Peter's post and I DID apply it to my sit'ion. However, it was the syntax of the double slash that error'd me (eg $a\\ ). Sorry - But this script @#$% is a mix of garbage. I'll stick to C++ and .NET. And I'll leave it there for now. Soory again. Thanks Pete!

"echo " is the best solution to such problem
you don't need anything more after that

and buddy, take your words back. this is not @#$%. and neither garbage. if you don't know how to use it, or don't have the patience, thats another thing.

Maybe in defence of gsjf.... sometimes I'll ask for certain method because I'll want to learn it that way....not that it's necessarily the best way...but one that maybe is requried or forms part of a bigger picture.

On the "$%^#&^%$ comments" that I see was censored (of course I'm curious now..) I think C++ is a bit of that myself because I don't know it..... I'm sure you'd jump to its defense too!
