tee will work as toggle command.
It will send the output to STANDARD Output as well as file specified by user.


$ tee "Hello this is the log and same is in the logfile" >process.log

Hello this is the log and same is in the logfile

"tee" command is used for displaying the output on the screen(i.e. standard output) as well as it directs one copy of the result/output to the specified file.

e.g
who | tee user.txt

this command will display all the users logged in and send the output to user.txt file also. Source: CoolInterview.com
