INTO(1)			    General Commands Manual		       INTO(1)

NAME
       into - copy into	a file without destroying it

SYNOPSIS
       into [ -f ] outfile

DESCRIPTION
       Into  copies its	standard input into the	specified outfile, but doesn't
       actually	modify the file	until it gets EOF.  This is useful in a	 pipe-
       line  for  putting  stuff back in the "same place."  The	outfile	is not
       overwritten if that would make it zero length, unless the -f option  is
       given.	That  option also forces overwriting of	the outfile even if it
       is not directly writable	(as long as the	directory is writable).

SEE ALSO
       pipe(2)

BUGS
       For efficiency reasons, the directory containing	the  outfile  must  be
       writable	by the invoker.
       The original outfile's owner is not preserved.
