Record Terminal Output to .txt File

Today I came across that annoying situation where you build something that throws an error, but the build process spits out so much text to your terminal, that the error is lost. The terminal can only hold so-much text in memory. So what to do?

Record the terminal output to a text file:

ls> output.txt 2>&1
