Create log file against a script


Dear friends ,

Is it possible to create a "logfile" against a script in Linux platform ?

Suppose I have a script like following :

=============================================
Date1=`date +%d%b%Y`
Date2=`date +%d%b%Y`.`date +%I`.`date +%M%p`
cd /test
tar -cvf test1_$Date2.tar test1
tar -cvf test2_$Date2.tar test2
ftp -i -v -n 192.168.10.1 <<END_FTP
user oracle oracle
binary
cd /tmp
mput test1_$Date2.tar
mput test2_$Date2.tar
bye
============================================

Now if I want to create a logfile against this script , then is it possible ? plz inform me .....

What do you mean "against this script"? Do you mean that you want to keep a record of the script output in a file?

If so, you can do it in several ways:
  1. Re-direct the output like this:
    Code:
    script_filename > my.log
    The (possible) disadvantage of this is that you won't see the normal output in the terminal, which you might want to see.
  2. Use tee:
    Code:
    script_filename | tee my.log
    This way you will see the output in the terminal and get the log file.
  3. use the script command:
    Code:
    script my.log
    script_filename
    (press control-D to end transcript)
