    You want to us the vi text editor at the command line to edit a brand new, blank file. You type in the command for vi and the file name "newfile". Too late do you realize that you haven't yet created that file. What happens as a result of your typing:
    Code:
    vi newfile
    Choose only one answer.

    1. You will get an error message stating the file doesn't exist
    2. vi will create the file on the fly
    3. You will automatically be returned to the command prompt
    4. You are asked if you want vi to create the file

    Answer later.

    Well what can I say!

    17 whole minutes of vi and I figure that (This is great)

    I know less than a lot of others, but as the UNIX people say "less is more"!!!!!!!!!

    Answer time. Correct answer is #2. If you type in "vi filename" and "filename" doesn't exist, vi will create it for you in whatever directory you happen to be in at the time.
