>From Bash man page (Redirecting output):

       Note  that  the order of redirections is significant.  For
       example, the command

              ls > dirlist 2>&1

       directs both standard output and  standard  error  to  the
       file dirlist, while the command

              ls 2>&1 > dirlist

       directs  only the standard output to file dirlist, because
       the standard  error  was  duplicated  as  standard  output
       before the standard output was redirected to dirlist.

For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"" with one line of text: "help".
