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
