To write the end of a file with a new line in Linux, you can use different methods:

  1. Text editors: If you are using a text editor like Vim or Nano, you can simply press the enter key at the end of the file, and the new line will be added automatically when you save the file.
  2. echo command: You can use the echo command to append a new line to a file. Here's the syntax: echo >> filename This will append a new line at the end of the file without any content.
  3. echo command with a string: If you want to add some content along with the new line, you can use the echo command as follows: echo -e "Content " >> filename This command will add the string "Content" followed by a new line at the end of the file.
  4. printf command: Another way to add a new line at the end of a file is to use the printf command: printf ' ' >> filename The character represents a new line.


Note: When using echo or printf, make sure to use the >> redirection operator to append the content to the file instead of overwriting it.
