np, and because I got curious, I've always wanted to be able to do it in one
command, and I could never get the [&] and [&&] to play together. (the [&]
tells bash to put the command in the background)

So I asked a buddy and he suggested this nice little script to do the job.
(Thanks ahigerd @ #qt on

Title of script is

$* 2>&1 | tee $1.out

looks slick! (and tee is a program that captures, and outputs at same time)

so you would just run command

or do what the script is doing for you.

command 2>&1 | tee command.out

but if you write this script and put it in /usr/bin, then you can simply run
like above ( command)

wich will output to screen at same time as capturing to command.txt (like my

then there is the [|] pipe operator which tells bash to take the output of
command to the left of the [|] pipe, and "pipe" it to stdin of the command to
the right.

command | grep "text to look for"

is a VERY common use of [|].
