The title basically says it all. tee has an option --ignore-interrupts:
-i, --ignore-interrupts ignore interrupt signals
Can anyone explain/give an example in which situation this is important? Thanks!
When called with
tee ignores the interrupt signal (
SIGINT), which is normally issued by your terminal when hitting Ctrl+C.
tee is used with
-i, --ignore-interrupts options, It wont accept any interrupt signals like CNTRL+C ^C or Kill signals Except signal KILL or Signal Terminate.
