I'm writing and debugging a bash script. This script writes to several files. For testing purposes I've created text files and have directed the output to those text files. I run the script, check the text files to see if I got the results I'm expecting, clear the content of the text files and make changes to the script. Then I repeat the process. This is tedious. Now, the first few sections of the script behave as I want them to and are complete. Can I direct the output to /dev/null instead of text files while I move on to the next section?
