Is there a difference between the
>\> operators? I read the following blurb in a RHEL training book:
"You can add standard output to the end of an existing file with a double redirection arrow with a command such as
ls >\> filelist
I'm more accustomed to the
>> operator and when I try both, I get different results.
>>seems to append output to the file that follows it (as expected).
>\>seems to append output to a file literally called >
Is this a error in the book I'm reading? Or am I missing the author's point?
