I know

type foo >a.s puts foo into a.s
type foo 2>a.s puts errors into a.s

but what if I want both into the same file?

type foo >a.s 2>a.s doesn't work, neither does
type foo 1>a.s 2>a.s

i can send them to separate files and concatenate - but what a hack

thanks

You might try f >a.s 2>&1. It works under bash. Maybe it'll work on MS.

type foo>a.s 2>&1

The >& operator writes the output from one handle to the input of
another handle. So in the above the output of stderr is redirected to
stdout, which is then redirected to a.s.
