Meaning of TEE

Pronunciation:  tee

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

A unix command which copies its standard input to its standard output (like cat) but also to a file given as its argument. tee is thus useful in pipelines of unix commands (see plumbing) where it allows you to create a duplicate copy of the data stream. E.g.

        egrep Unix Dictionary | tee /dev/tty | wc -l

searches for lines containing the string "Unix" in the file "Dictionary", prints them to the terminal (/dev/tty) and counts them.

unix manual page: tee(1).

[jargon file]
