Trying to use truncate is not working on my end.
Does anyone see a syntax error with it???
Ran on 5.2.1-RELEASE-p6 FreeBSD.

$ pwd
$ ls ~/z.php
$ truncate -r ~/z.php
usage: truncate [-c] -s [+|-]size[K|M|G] file ...
       truncate [-c] -r rfile file ...

I tried $ truncate -r rfile ~/z.php but that didn't work either.
