gnucash: Launch GnuCash and load an empty file.
$ gnucash --nofile
try on your machine

The command "gnucash --nofile" is used to run the GNUCash accounting software without opening any existing file.

GNUCash is an open-source accounting software that allows users to track their personal finances or manage business accounting. When you typically launch GNUCash, it prompts you to open an existing file or create a new one.

By appending the "--nofile" option to the command, you're instructing GNUCash to start without automatically opening any file. This can be useful if you want to open a blank session or create a new file from scratch.
