if your looking for output to both stdout and a logfile either script or tee

script will put everything into a logfile and tee will split stdout to a logfile as well

I.E - <shell command> | tee <file_name>
> Another option is simply "ksh -x sqlplus ... 1>$OUTFIL 2>&1".

I tried to put a echo before the sqlplus to know it but i have to update it each time so looking for a better way. Zoran and Frank helped out dba village and I have made progress to this point. Could not find much on net. Thanks
