Manual Reference Pages - INTO (1)
into - copy into a file without destroying it
Into copies its standard input into the specified
outfile, but doesnt actually modify the file
until it gets EOF.
This is useful in a pipeline for putting stuff back in the "same place."
outfile is not overwritten if that would make it zero length, unless
-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).
For efficiency reasons, the directory containing the
outfile must be writable by the invoker.
outfiles owner is not preserved.
