echo or print to screen and file

I did a search for this topic but I couldn't find it and I was sure I have seen something similar before (hard because I am not sure of the criteria for the keywords)

What I was looking for was to be able to echo a message to the screen from a bash.sh script at the same time logging it to a file.

So far I have been duplicating the line twice, one to the screen, one to the file. Any suggestions?

ie
Code:
echo "Warning: file $USR on $tdate"
echo "Warning: file $USR on $tdate" >/logfile.log

Look into the tee command. ($ man tee)
That might help you out.
