    Smile how to add some text to a file from a command line?


    Hi,

    How can one add some text to the end of the file from the command line without opening the file?

    I mean something like:

    # <some command> "text" >> myfile.txt

    or something similar if this doesn't make any sence

    Thanks a lot!

    Code:
    echo "text" >> myfile.txt
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
