> writes a new file, how to append?


I'm now running some programs in the /etc/rc.d/rc.local script, but I want to be able to log the outputs. Right now I have "ls > /root/systembootmessages/ls" for example. But every time I reboot, it will be over written, correct? Is there a way that I can make the output append to a file? Thanks!
