tee man page

tee — read from standard input and write to standard output and files

TL;DR

echo "example" | tee {{FILE}}

echo "example" | tee -a {{FILE}}

Synopsis

tee [OPTION]... [FILE]...

Description

Copy standard input to each FILE, and also to standard output.

-a, --append
append to the given FILEs, do not overwrite
-i, --ignore-interrupts
ignore interrupt signals
-p
diagnose errors writing to non pipes
--output-error[=MODE]
set behavior on write error. See MODE below
--help
display this help and exit
--version
output version information and exit

MODE determines behavior with write errors on the outputs

'warn'
diagnose errors writing to any output
'warn-nopipe'
diagnose errors writing to any output not a pipe
'exit'
exit on error writing to any output
'exit-nopipe'
exit on error writing to any output not a pipe

The default MODE for the -p option is 'warn-nopipe'. The default operation when --output-error is not specified, is to exit immediately on error writing to a pipe, and diagnose errors writing to non pipe outputs.
