"Combining standard output and standard error Redirection is frequently used for jobs that run for a long period of time, or for jobs that produce a lot of output.

Remember that if you redirect standard output but not standard error, output will go to a file and error messages will still go to your screen.

find: /some/directory: Permission denied
find: /another/one: Permission denied
