Oh - I thought those were two separate issues. *I* don't know what xmule is. *g* I thought you were just wanting to get some console display into a file. And the syntax is 'command | tee filename', yeah, but I suddenly suspect you have something completely different in mind. Do you mean a sort of screen capture of your console? I'm not actually sure how to do that, though it can be done, I believe.

Nope, i meant just getting some output from the console into a file. You just told me how to do it though. What is tee? Is it a text editor?

Couldn't i just use this, i'm guessing.
xmule | cat > filename
?

xmule is a p2p application that i hear good things about. It's gui, but whenever i run it it doesn't start up because of an error or something. I just want to save the error text into a file so i can easily put it online, instead of retyping it all.

No, tee's just a pipe utility. You can't directly edit the input and output - it just splits the output so that it displays on your screen *and* is passed to a file or another app. I thought you wanted to see the display and save it. If you just want it saved to a file, depending on the app you can launch it from your xterm just like

xmule > xmule.output

and the GUI will come up (or not) and the console messages will be in the file. Seems like that's not worked for some apps, but it does for most - just did for dillo as a test case, like

Code:
|--digiot@slackath Fri Jul 25 23:31:13
|--bash 2.05b ~ $ dillo > dillo.output

Sure it's enabling cookies. And I've gotta fix my clock. Ever since I installed and removed Mandrake my clock's been screwed. Anyway - that's the idea.

Well isn't this a bugger.

With dillo:
dillo > dillo.txt saves my output to dillo.txt

With xmule:
xmule > xmule.txt makes an empty file, although the output of trying to run xmule does get onto my screen

I guess i'll just have to run xmule, even though it won't run, and copy what it says in the aterm by hand to a form on these forums when i ask what's wrong. Bugger!

Well, if it is writing to stdout, then try

xmule | tee xmule.txt.

I'm not sure why simple redirection doesn't work with some apps but tee should because it *is* writing to screen at least. But, um, if it's writing to screen you could just select the text in aterm and copy it into your browser. In rxvt I select and middle-click in mozilla.

Which is kinda ironic as that's how I pasted in the stuff I redirected to begin with. *completely confuses self*

If you want to copy text from a terminal, all you have to do is highlight it with a left-click of the mouse; then to paste it somewhere else, just middle click. This will work as long as there isn't too much text (say it fills more than the scroll buffer for your aterm)

Since xmule > xmule.txt is giving you an empty file, and you seem to be trying to copy error messages, then you could try the following:

xmule 2> xmule.txt

The 2 in this command redirects output from stderr (error messages) to the file xmule.txt.

Enjoy!
