# Is there a way to export the output of the command show_transfers?

When entering show_transfers into monero-wallet-cli, one is provided a list of in- and out- transactions related to that wallet. Is there a way to use that command to export the data into a txt, csv, or other type of file?

To write the output of a command to a file, there are basically 8 commonly used ways.

### Overview:

         || visible in terminal ||   visible in file   || existing
Syntax  ||  StdOut  |  StdErr  ||  StdOut  |  StdErr  ||   file
=========++==========+==========++==========+==========++===========
>     ||    no    |   yes    ||   yes    |    no    || overwrite
>>    ||    no    |   yes    ||   yes    |    no    ||  append
||          |          ||          |          ||
2>     ||   yes    |    no    ||    no    |   yes    || overwrite
2>>    ||   yes    |    no    ||    no    |   yes    ||  append
||          |          ||          |          ||
&>     ||    no    |    no    ||   yes    |   yes    || overwrite
&>>    ||    no    |    no    ||   yes    |   yes    ||  append
||          |          ||          |          ||
| tee    ||   yes    |   yes    ||   yes    |    no    || overwrite
| tee -a ||   yes    |   yes    ||   yes    |    no    ||  append

• command > output.txt

The standard output stream will be redirected to the file only, it will not be visible in the terminal. If the file already exists, it gets overwritten.

• command >> output.txt

The standard output stream will be redirected to the file only, it will not be visible in the terminal. If the file already exists, the new data will get appended to the end of the file.

• command 2> output.txt

The standard error stream will be redirected to the file only, it will not be visible in the terminal. If the file already exists, it gets overwritten.

• command 2>> output.txt

The standard error stream will be redirected to the file only, it will not be visible in the terminal. If the file already exists, the new data will get appended to the end of the file.

• command &> output.txt

Both the standard output and standard error stream will be redirected to the file only, nothing will be visible in the terminal. If the file already exists, it gets overwritten.

• command &>> output.txt

Both the standard output and standard error stream will be redirected to the file only, nothing will be visible in the terminal. If the file already exists, the new data will get appended to the end of the file..

• command | tee output.txt

The standard output stream will be copied to the file, it will still be visible in the terminal. If the file already exists, it gets overwritten.

• command | tee -a output.txt

The standard output stream will be copied to the file only, it will still be visible in the terminal. If the file already exists, the new data will get appended to the end of the file.

You can always copy/paste from the terminal, or if you could do it by RPC and pipe the output to a text file.
