[PLUG] Bash I/O redirection

Hey Guys,

I have this bash script that does an oracle backup (launched via crontab), and I'd like to redirect the output of the script to a file. The classic ways to do it would be:
   * use a wrapper script (that requires an additional script...)
   * call the script with '>' in the cron line (make my cron line ugly)
   * inside the script, put a ">>" after each command (berk !)

My question is: would there be a way to put a global redirection at the beginning of the script ?
something like
   "1 > /tmp/log.txt"
and then have all the subsequent commands go to the log file ?
