Error Unix shell output redirection help

Hi all,

Actually i need to know whether there is any way to redirect the output of shell operations into any file without pipe .

Actually my problem is , i run some command & its result is displayed on shell after some calculations on shell, so if i redirect its output to file, it is not getting written over there.

eg echo <SOME COMMAND> | tee -a file.txt

So after this there is nothing in this file. instead the result is shown on shell terminal after 3 or 4 seconds. So i just need to know if i can set any variable so that it can re direct that output to file. or there is any other way of doing it.

Thanks in advance


Thanks
Sarbjit

I need the solution urgently.

You are not getting my point, if i use redirection it doesn't displays the result in file. It move to next command. So what i need is to redirect stdout output to file so that i can have that result.

Maybe you're not getting my point: Is this a homework question?

Hi franklin

yeah you can say that. I am working on some project and i need this info to be dumped in a file.

Now getting to point, Is it possible to redirect stdout output to file. i have tried using pipe symbol and redirection operators but, it doesn't writes that to file, i have even tried using sleep command, but of no success.

Can you please let me know how to proceed

Thanks
