Tee-Object - Powershell 2.0 CmdLet

Microsoft Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting tool based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. It is designed for system administrators, engineers and developers to control and automate the administration of Windows and applications.

More than hundred command-line tools (so called "cmdlets") can be used to perform system administration tasks and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). These cmdlets are easy to use, with standard naming conventions and common parameters, and standard tools for piping, sorting, filtering, and formatting data and objects.


Short description
Saves command output in a file or variable, and displays it in the console.

Tee-Object [-FilePath] <string> [-InputObject <psobject>] [<CommonParameters>]

Tee-Object -Variable <string> [-InputObject <psobject>] [<CommonParameters>]

The Tee-Object cmdlet sends the output of a command in two directions (like the letter "T"). It stores the output i
n a file or variable and also sends it down the pipeline. If Tee-Object is the last command in the pipeline, the co
mmand output is displayed in the console.
