comment How can I clear the contents of every file in a subdirectory without changing ownership / permissions?
Sorry, I should have noticed that wouldn't work - I didn't think about it, just copied it from your example. The update shows how to fix that; invoking a single shell command. Using the "| while read file; do" version would also work smoothly.
