Zero those log files

Some programs write to multiple log files in a directory and need to be zeroed out sometimes to save diskspace. The following ksh shell script will zero out all files with the “.log” extension in a directory.

— cut here —
for object in *.log
do
> $object
print “$object has been zeroed!”
done
— cut here —

Just a little time saver when you have 100 other things to be doing.
