How to add a txt file in the terminal without putting any data in it

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I am trying to add a textfile to the desktop and then delete it, i did have the code working to create the file, but now whenever i create it, it then makes me put data into it, whatever i type in the terminal is saved into the created txt file. What i need is for the file to be created and then the user selects another option from the menu. #!/bin/bash # # Script to perform some simple tasks # chmod 755 TaskB.sh while: do clear echo "*********************" echo "* Tools *" echo "*********************" echo "* [1] Install gnome-disk-utility and gparted *" echo "* [2] Create CET103Demo.txt *" (HowTos)
