Duplicating StdOut

In case you would ever like to duplicate standard output to log the stream of data while processing it, tee is your friend:

	echo stdout
	echo stderr >&2
} | tee >(cat >stdout1) >stdout2

NOTE: The output is not synchronized linewise. So redirecting both lines of processing into the same file (using >>) will cause the individual results to be garbled.
