echo to a file using bash

atm I have
echo exited var1 null >> debug.nfo
but what if I wanted to echo to 2 files i.e. one main debug file and one linked to the specific run of the script i.e. $1debug.nfo

do I have to write the line twice or can I echo the same information into 2 files using just 1 line and 1 echo command?

look up the `tee` command. It will allow you to tee the data to two or more files, as well as to stdout.
