NAME
tee — pipe fitting

SYNOPSIS
tee [-ai] [file …]

DESCRIPTION
The tee utility copies standard input to standard output, making a copy in zero or more files. The output is
unbuffered.

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.

STANDARDS
The tee function is expected to be POSIX IEEE Std 1003.2 (“POSIX.2”) compatible.
