Bash command questions


Hi,

1 - I want to do a ls command, but that directs explicity to a file and to the standard output at the same time. How should i do?

2 - What means the command "ls 2>&1"? What means "2>" and "&1"?

3 - As as user, when I do a find command, sometimes appears that the find can search in a specified directory because it's belongs to root and I don't have permission. How can I make disappear this error messages, during the execution of the command?


Thanks,

Pedro

ls | tee ls.txt

2>&1 basically means to output the stderr (error messages) to stdout (the screen).

Either don't search that directory, or run the find command as root.

example:

Code:
find /    \( -perm -4000 -fprintf ~/suid.txt '%#m %u %p\n' \)  2>/dev/null
This will search the system for suid programs and output the results to a file. Errors like not being able to enter the /root directory will be redirected to /dev/null.
