TEE(1)                    BSD General Commands Manual                   TEE(1)

     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 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.

     The tee function is expected to be POSIX IEEE Std 1003.2 (``POSIX.2'') compatible.
