If you have to noclobber bash option set, then normal redirection echo foo > /tmp/bar will fail if /tmp/bar exists. ie, bash doesn't let you clobber an existing file using >. If you use >| then you subvert this and tell bash to clobber the file even if noclobber is set. Because its a /tmp file then clobbering is not so bad.
