SUMMARY: Solaris 8: Redirect standard error two places

Thanks to the half a dozen folk who responded immediately.  J. Tucker was
the first who remind me to use 2>&1 | tee logfile.out which I had tried, but
in the midst of the all combinations I things I tried, I dismissed this one
as the log file kept getting overwritten.   As the masses can now see, it
was right all along, I just forgot to add the -a to tee to append to the log
file.  I guess I could not see the forest through all the trees!

I will be testing 2>&1 | tee -a logfile.out in my script and give it a good
grinding test.
