You can create a sub to do that ... I call it "log" below, and call it with a test message:


@echo off

call :log test text

:log
echo %*
echo %* >> file.txt
exit/b

:end

oops, left out an exit:

@echo off

call :log test text

exit/b


:log
echo %*
echo %* >> file.txt
exit/b

:end

There is no single command in batch to echo to the screen and to a file.

I noticed you tagged powershell, in which case you could use the Tee-Object command
