In my cron tab, I was using &> to direct output to /dev/null. I want  
to make sure I understand the synxtax. I was told that 1> and 2> could  
be used to redirect more specifically; 1> being the output and 2>  
being errors. Is that correct? Does &> catch both?, so the only reason  
to use 1> and 2> would be if I want the two types to go to two  
different log files?
