            Uses lex and yacc and C
            UNIX Man, can you help me At all?

1. HELP: 2>&1 > /dev/null != 2>&- > /dev/null ???

In /bin/sh, I tried to redirect the standard error and standard output to
/dev/null.

I still has the error message from the following command:

        ls /xyz 2>&1 > /dev/null

but not from the following command:

        ls /xyz 2>&- > /dev/null

I thought >&1 is the same as >&-. Any comments are appreciated.

Thank you.

Larry
