I am in the process of debugging a script and I would like to have the
output of stdout redirected to a file.

After reading about redirection on the Internet, I was under the
impression the following would redirect stdout to a file, but I cannot
seem to get it to work.

tar -cvzf root.tgz /root > /dev/null 2>/home/jay/tarlog

I'm sure it is something simple I am doing wrong, but I am not seeing it.

Thanks for your help.


In your command line above you are redirecting stdout to /dev/null and stderr to your file.


tar -cvzf root.tgz /root > /home/jay/tarlog 2>&1
