Another way, which avoids 'tee'
Authored by: sharumpe on May 01, '03 11:22:19AM
alias note "date >> /tmp/notes.txt; cat >> /tmp/notes.txt"

Does the same thing, but without the unnecessary second copy sent to /dev/null.

Another way, which avoids 'tee'
Authored by: ospfguru on May 01, '03 08:44:32PM

I have tried this command as shown and it does not appear to
be working, terminal accept either of the two solutions presented
here but neither is working. Might I be doing something wrong? I
tried as a normal user and root.

alias note 'date >> ~/users/topkick/ssh.txt; tee -a ~/users/
topkick/ssh.txt > /dev/null'

alias note "date >> /tmp/notes.txt; cat >> /tmp/notes.txt"

I suppose the following:
- the folder you are writing to does exist
- permissions are ok
- you restarted Terminal.app after introducing the aliases

if so, try writing the code as one line into /usr/share/tcsh/examples/aliases
and try again.
HTH, pink
