What you meant was >/dev/null 2>&1. Order is important here.


Interesting.... but care to elaborate on this just for my curiosity sake? The way I was understanding it was:
2>&1 >/dev/null

meaning assign stderr to stdout and then move stdout to /dev/null

Now it's:
/dev/null 2>&1

which I take it to mean move stdout to /dev/null and stderr to stdout

Where am I getting it wrong?

Thanks and best regards.
