recently I wanted to read the man pages for mplayer. So I needed to type
man mplayer in the terminal.
Yet out of clumsiness
I know that I could redirect the output e.g. to a text-file with that command.
But can anyone tell me what exactly happens when I forget to define a destination, as I did with
man mplayer> ?
Where is it redirected to, if at all?
I get the error
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
in bash or
fish: Expected a string, but instead found end of the statement man mplayer> ^
Tnx a lot in andvance. Rosika
