A quick guide to the touch command, used to create an empty file

You can create an empty file using the touch command:

touch apple

If the file already exists, it opens the file in write mode, and the timestamp of the file is updated.

This command works on Linux, macOS, WSL, and anywhere you have a UNIX environment
