tee

Read from standard input and write to standard output and files (or commands). More information: https://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/tee.

  • Copy standard input to each FILE, and also to standard output:

echo "example" | tee {{FILE}}

  • Append to the given FILEs, do not overwrite:

echo "example" | tee -a {{FILE}}

  • Print standard input to the terminal, and also pipe it into another program for further processing:

echo "example" | tee {{/dev/tty}} | {{xargs printf "[%s]"}}

  • Create a directory called "example", count the number of characters in "example" and write "example" to the terminal:

echo "example" | tee >(xargs mkdir) >(wc -c)
