• dot files created automatically on creation of ordinary .txt file


    I’ve only just realized that when I make a file like antergos_tips.txt (to store the tip I just got from Just on use of reflector) the following dot file is created automatically.
    .antergos_tips.txt.un~

    Something similar happens when I use the “cp” or “mv” command.

    Could someone please point me to something to read about this?
    Thanks in advance,
    TT

  • Which text editor are you using? Check the settings, there is an option for creating a backup copy of a file before saving it.

    Cheers!

    Vim. Thanks logs. Of course it does!
    I’m reading the manual on it now, thanks to you.
