If you are looking for some way to capture the output to a file, use the
"tee" command. Essentially you'll want to run "flac <params> 2>&1 | tee
flac.log". The "2>&1" will redirect stderr to stdout so they become one
stream, then tee will save it to the file flac.log and output it to
stdout as well. Lates..
