    The commands code hello.c and touch hello.c serve different purposes and perform different actions related to file handling in a programming or Unix-like environment.

    1. touch hello.c:
      • Purpose: The touch command is used to create an empty file or to update the timestamp of an existing file.
      • Usage:
        touch hello.c
      • Effect: If hello.c does not exist, this command will create an empty file named hello.c. If the file already exists, it will update the file’s access and modification timestamps to the current time without modifying the file’s content.
    2. code hello.c:
      • Purpose: The code command is used to open files in Visual Studio Code (VS Code), which is a popular code editor.
      • Usage:
        code hello.c
      • Effect: This command will open the file hello.c in Visual Studio Code. If hello.c does not exist, VS Code will create a new file with that name and open it in the editor for you to start writing code.


    • touch hello.c: Creates an empty file named hello.c or updates the timestamps of the existing file.
    • code hello.c: Opens the file hello.c in Visual Studio Code, creating it if it doesn’t already exist.

    These commands are typically used in different contexts: touch is more of a basic file management utility in Unix-like systems, while code is specific to launching and using VS Code for development purposes.
