NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       tee  - Displays the output of a program and copies it into
       a file

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       tee [-ai] file...

STANDARDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Interfaces documented on this reference  page  conform  to
       industry standards as follows:

       tee:  XCU5.0

       Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information
 about industry standards and associated tags.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Adds the output to the end of file instead of writing over
       it.  Ignores the SIGINT signal.

OPERANDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Standard  input  is  stored into, or appended to, the file

              [Tru64 UNIX]  The tee command can accept up  to  20
              file arguments.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  tee  command  reads standard input and writes to both
       standard output, and each specified file.

       The tee command is useful when you wish  to  view  program
       output  as  it is displayed, and also want to save it in a
       file. The tee command does not buffer output, so  you  may
       wish  to  pipe  the output of tee to more if more than one
       full screen of data is anticipated.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       If a write to any file fails, the exit status of tee  will
       be  non-zero.   Writes to all other specified files may be
       successful, and operation  will  continue  until  standard
       input is exhausted.

EXIT STATUS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The following exit values are returned: Successful completion.
  An error occurred.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       To view and save the output from a  command  at  the  same
       time, enter: lint program.c | tee program.lint

              This  displays  the  standard output of the command
              lint program.c at the terminal,  and  at  the  same
              time  saves  a copy of it in the file program.lint.
              If program.lint already exists, it is  deleted  and
              replaced.   To display and append to a file, enter:
              lint program.c | tee -a program.lint

              This displays the standard output of lint program.c
              at the terminal and at the same time appends a copy
              of it to the end  of  program.lint.   If  the  file
              program.lint does not exist, it is created.


       The  following  environment variables affect the execution
       of tee: Provides a default value for the internationalization
 variables that are unset or null. If LANG is unset or
       null, the corresponding value from the default  locale  is
       used.   If  any of the internationalization variables contain
 an invalid setting, the utility behaves as if none of
       the  variables  had  been  defined.  If set to a non-empty
       string value, overrides the values of all the other internationalization
  variables.  Determines the locale for the
       interpretation of sequences of bytes of text data as characters
  (for  example, single-byte as opposed to multibyte
       characters in arguments).  Determines the locale  for  the
       format  and  contents  of  diagnostic  messages written to
       standard error.  Determines the location of message  catalogues
 for the processing of LC_MESSAGES.
