SYNTAX
~~~~~~
    AnyCommand 2>&1 | REGINA.EXE TEE[.REX]  [drive:][path]FileName [GbSpecs]

DETAILS
~~~~~~~
    This command is used to intercept stdout, stderr or both and send it to
    the specified file as well as outputting it to stdout.

    Whenever a pipe is used the original commands return code is lost, the
    "GbSpecs" parameters allow you to build your own return code based on
    on the output text.

    A simple string such as "ERROR" or "WARNING" is what I call a "BAD" spec
    since if the strings are found then the return code will be non-zero.
    When a string is preceeded by "!" I call this a good spec as this string
    must be present for a 0 return code.  You can mix good and bad specs.
