editing non-existent files in linux

Hi Patrick,

A follow up question, the JULES tutorial suggests adding something or editing a file, .bash_profile for example. I created it with the touch command as it does not exist for me. I am doing it right or the .bash_profile was supposed to be there?

Best regards,

Hi Amsalework

Yes, if the file doesn't exist, you can create it. You don't need to do it with the touch command.
You can just start editing the file with vi or another editor. And then save the file.
