nano Editing
Linux Commands - Shells

This is the screenshot sequence for creating a file called testfile.  Open nano by issuing the command:



Lesson 1 | Lesson 3



It will open with a blank screen and then you can immediately begin typing.   Type you text and when you are done select ^O (remember this is the Ctrl key +O).   You want to "WriteOut" your text.


The buffer has been modified so you want to save it to a text file, be sure to select Y.


When you enter that command the next screen will show that at the bottom a line will say:

File Name to Write: testfile

There you can enter your file name that you want to use.

This will then save your file.

If you want to open a file you have saved just use the command:

nano testfile
