tee is new to me. I saw the cmd mentioned in posts here on LQ.org.
I've always used the redirect symbols to write to a file or append to a file > or >> ( double to append).
What does tee add that you all use it instead of redirects (if anything). I realize there is normally more than one way to accomplish the same task. Is this just another occurrence of use whichever you prefer, both will get the job done.
