I have a program I run that calls a java jar which produces both output and error stacks

./s.sh

Open in new window


The error stack (and output combined) are too much for my screen and I want to redirect both output and error info to a single file, something like

./s.sh > a.out

Open in new window


However, not all data is redirected there, and I don't quite know how to redirect botht he error and output to the same file

Could someone plese post and example of how to do this ?

Thanks

./s.sh > a.out 2>&1

"1" (the default) is the is the file descriptor of stdout and "2" is the one of stderr.

2>&1 means "redirect stderr to where stdout is redirected right now", so a.out will contain a mix of stdout and stderr.

You can also separate stdout and stderr (redirect to two distinct files), like this:

./s.sh >a.out 2>e.out
