Saving in nano
You’ll generally save your files frequently whenever you’re editing them—and you should. Remember, Murphy is watching you!
To save in nano:
Use periodically to save (“write out”) the text you’re editing.
Specify the filename for your file .
In nano lingo, “writing out” just means “saving.”
