Sorry if this is a silly question but I'm trying to accomplish something like this but on one line:
$ prog1 | prog2 $ prog1 | prog3
So, I basically want to execute prog1 and pipe the output to prog2 and prog3 separately (not a chained pipe). At first, I was trying to use tee but that didn't seem right because it was dumping output to a file (which is not what I want).
$ prog1 | tee prog2 | prog3 # doesn't work - creates file "prog2"
At some point, I'd probably want to extend this to piping the output to more than two programs but I'm just starting simple for now.
$ prog1 | prog2 $ prog1 | prog3 $ prog1 | prog4 ...
