I also noticed that if I run "make>&  make.out" that the message is printed

I like this way

make&2>1 |tee make.out

"&2>1" redirect the error message to the std output
Shouldn't that be

make 2>&1 | tee make.out
yes correct,
typo from my side

looks on

for further info.

Marco and Csaba:

I looked in the first suggested link and found what my problem is. Item #3.6 is
This will place every output of a program to a file. This is suitable sometimes for cron entries, if you want a command to pass in absolute silence.

            rm -f $(find / -name core) &> /dev/null

This is what I am doing and my problem is basename is sending its error/warning to the screen and ignoring my "&>". Yes, I know my email originally stated ">&", but it doesn't seem to matter what the order is for basename to ignore it.

What am I not understanding in what the link says versus the actions I am seeing?
