Anything about creating a backup file while editing?

If it doesn't create a softlink it means it makes no backup of the file,

not create nor delete files. I think only the inode might change.

Simply edit it again wit a diferent editor, like joe (aka jstar aka jmacs
aka rjoe aka jpico), and save.
