http://unix.stackexchange.com – I want a create a file with a specific extension(.done). I am using the command touch. Something Like: touch basename $UNZIPFILE".done" It's creating the file but in current directory. I want to create this file in a specific directory. Is there a option to provide the directory ? I checked : http://ss64.com/bash/touch.html , but could not figure out. I can think of one option is before this command I can do a cd requiredDIR Is there any other way, I can specify the Directory on the same command, so that I dont have to change the Directory?
