Description:

This is a simple Konqueror context menu action that makes it easy to truncate, or "zero out" the contents of a file without deleting the file itself. If you're wondering what this is good for, you probably don't need it. I, however, created this to scratch the itch I had where I wanted to keep a record of certain large files I had downloaded, but didn't want to keep the bulky data around. By keeping the empty file in the filesystem -- moved to a "zeroed" subdir, for example -- it's easy to search for later using 'locate'.

To install, type:
make install
To uninstall:
make uninstall

Two things get installed: 1) the zerofile.desktop menu, and 2) a konqzerofile.sh script which uses kdialog to ask for confirmation before truncating the selected files (with 'cat /dev/null > "filename"').

Since this is a potentially dangerous menu action, it is only meant to be installed to the user's KDE dir, and not system-wide.

I've used this service menu for as long as I can remember but recently it no longer seems to be working.

The dialog comes up and says the file is zerod but it isn't.

Do you still have that file for the Andrews AFB Airshow and where did you get it? I used to live 15 minutes from there before going to school in Iowa.

The videos were from an old torrent, which might still have seeds somewhere.
