Linux Bash: Force writing console output to a file

Submitted by Peter Majmesku on Mon, 08/29/2016 - 20:34

Sometimes this command just does not write content to a file by the ">" operator:

myprogram do --something > my-file-with-the-output.txt

Then you can you a small Linux default program called "tee". Example usage:

myprogram do --something | tee my-file-with-the-output.txt

Tee allows you also to use some option as "-a" to extend the file's content's instead of replacing them.
