You didn't say which shell you used, but in borne type shells, generally something like > for standard output, and 2> for standard error would work. So program 2> log should work, since error messages tend to be displayed on stderr. In a borne type shell, you can do program > log 2>&1 as well, which logs both stdout and stderr to the same file.
If you ever want to both log and display, you can look at the tee(1) program too.
