This technique is also very useful when you want to pipe output which has 
errors, or you want to read the program help for a program which sends the 
help text to standard output (this drives me mad).

command 2>&1 |less

Finallly, if you do want output and errors in separate files, you can 
still do it with one command:

command >output_file 2>error_file
