My problem is the following: I want to edit a file that is only readable by root. That's why I use
sudo vim ~/thefile
I could type
after exiting vim, but I was hoping that there's an option or something that makes sudo forget the password automatically. Of course I thought about editing the sudoers file and setting the timeout to 0, but I don't want to change the settings in general. I also found nothing in the manpage...
Is there a way to do this?
If interesting: I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and bash.
