Automatically stdout redirection to a file


Hi,

I am wondering if there is a way how to automatically redirect stdout to a file when executing a command. Something like adding
Code:
 | tee -a outputfile.txt
after every command. I would find useful if I could see the output of a command executed in the past without executing it again if when cannot scroll the terminal window.

yes you can
[code]command > file.txt[code]
and
Code:
command >> file.txt
to append the output to an existing file

Hi,

Thanks jgallo but it is not what I need. I want everything what is displayed on the screen to be redirected to a file as well, without having to type
Code:
| tee -a outputfile.txt
after each command. Is there something like a global option, that can do that?

Thanks.
