Hi All,

I am trying to get the standard output and error streams to be
filtered so that any output with the string 'saved as' is discarded
and the rest is appended to /home/dave/kmotion2/www/motion_output
Me and BASH just do not get on, I have tried

motion -c /home/dave/kmotion2/core/motion_conf/motion.conf &> | grep
-v 'saved as' >> /home/dave/kmotion2/www/motion_output
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `|'

Any idea how to make this work




Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
