From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  tee
  
      A Unix command which copies its
     standard input to its standard output (like cat) but
     also to a file given as its argument.  tee is thus useful in
     pipelines of Unix commands (see plumbing) where it
     allows you to create a duplicate copy of the data stream.
     E.g.
  
     	egrep Unix Dictionary | tee /dev/tty | wc -l
  
     searches for lines containing the string "Unix" in the file
     "Dictionary", prints them to the terminal (/dev/tty) and
     counts them.
  
     Unix manual page: tee(1).
