[ReadMe] [How To] Save Terminal Errors To An Output File

1 post in this topic


Hello everyone. This topic issues saving the generated error messages (or the command output in general) to a new output file.


This will help you especially if you want to post a topic the Help & Support section. Instead of posting endless screenshots you can copy the output text from the file and paste in in your topic. Sometimes when you get a lot of error messages you need to take 2-3 screenshots however after reading this little guide, you'll be able to just  provide the error text and thereby help the people who are trying to help you.


You don't need any additional command line Tweaks from Cydia so we can start right off with the tutorial.





Step 1:


Open up Mobile Terminal / iOS Terminal / MTerminal and chdir into your project folder







Step 2:


To create the command output in another file do following (I recommend you set it to a .txt file for convenient reading on all platforms)







Done. You just created the file Errors.txt in your project directory!


If you want to create the output file in a different directory than your project folder







After opening the Errors.txt file you'll see the command output and the error it generated. Here is the output of the sample tweak








Thank you for reading! I hope you'll use this method in the future to save yourself and the community a lot of work in your next support topic ;)
