Discussion on: Creating files with "touch"

I find touch to be helpful when I am already in the command line, hands to the keyboard, and need to create a new scratch or readme file. Then, I start editing right away. Sometimes I did not handle generating files correctly and need to fill in the gaps.

Why do you need to create the file separately before editing?
