bash creating files named ‘1’ everywhere!
So I ran into something kind of stupid today 🙂 Adding a little note for anyone who might run into a similar instance.
I have some ssh-add stuff that gets run in my .bashrc file, but when I was outputting it, I was doing:
ssh-add ~/.ssh/some_key > /dev/null 2&>1
Note the 2&>1 at the end. That means to redirect output to a file named 1. You need to flip the &> into >&, so the fixed version looks like:
ssh-add ~/.ssh/some_key > /dev/null 2>&1
