I've been looking through two different options for sending a crontab task's output to neverland but am uncertain as to the details for the following ... anybody that can explain them?
example1: crontab task details here ... >/dev/null 2>&1
example2: crontab task details here ... 2>&1 > /dev/null
I know that the 2 is STDERR and the 1 is STDOUT, but beyond that I am uncertain of the intended result.
