Just wanted to know... how do I make a file with all 1s or 0s or
something with a certain size (eg. 100Mb)?
I was thinking 'dd something' but there is probably a better way?
why not dd?
dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/yourfile bs=1m count=100
Also, piping through tr could be handy.
dd if=/dev/zero bs=1m count=100 |tr "\0" "1" > /tmp/yourfile
