truncating files

Is there already a (standard) utility on a linux box to truncate a
file to 0 bytes?  [Besides echo -n "" > foo, which is 1) too long for
my lazy fingers and 2) won't take multiple filenames ]

Since I couldn't find one, I wrote a little C program to do it, but I
am still interested in whether there is already one on the system.


One must imagine Sysiphus happy
