rediraction of data entry


I have created file "dirlist" using the next command:
ls > dirlist
Then I changed current directory and made the same. When I opened "dirlist" I saw the content of the new current directory. I forbided overwriting by
set -o noclobber
Yep, it works, nothing can be attended to the file but how to revert?

noblobber is not what you want - it will make the append FAIL
if the file exists.

Just use > for the first redirect, and >> for subsequent ones.


Cheers,
Tink

Only by output redirection in the shell. The change I think you want is not to the file but to the shell: set +o noclobber
