Insert text into a file using shell script


I need to insert "Hello World" text into a file called hai.txt using shell scripting. Kindly help me.

For eg: If I open the file hai.txt by giving linux command cat hai.txt, the content of the file should have the text Hello World in it.

# 2  
You can redirect the output of echo to file.
echo "Hello world." > Hi.txt

# 3  
for creating new file/overriding data into file
echo "Hello World" > hai.txt

for appending data into file
echo "Hello World" >> hai.txt

That said this look very much homework...
