Working with Unix-based systems, I have gradually become sluggish to open an editor and tweak something in a file. Especially, system files must only be allowed by a superuser to open which causes a bit complicated and bored. If you are not familiar with Unix-based systems, you probably have some trouble with changing such files.
As the post title suggests, here is the tip.
echo '192.168.1.254 router' | sudo tee -a /etc/hosts
Below is the output of running
tee -- pipe fitting
tee [-ai] [file ...]
The tee utility copies standard input to standard output, making a copy in zero or more files. The output is
The following options are available:
-a Append the output to the files rather than overwriting them.
-i Ignore the SIGINT signal.
The following operands are available:
file A pathname of an output file.
The tee utility takes the default action for all signals, except in the event of the -i option.
The tee utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
The tee function is expected to be POSIX IEEE Std 1003.2 (``POSIX.2'') compatible.
Running this command is recommended to take more extra care because it will destroy everything saved and persisted on the target files if you forget to indicate the option -a meaning append. I used to be suffered such an incident without having any recoverable way.
Hopefully, this tip helps you improve your productivity on a daily basis.
