    Command:

    script

    
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

         Script makes a typescript of everything printed on your terminal.  It is
         useful for students who need a hardcopy record of an interactive session
         as proof of an assignment, as the typescript file can be printed out
         later with lpr(1).
    
         If the argument file is given, script saves all dialogue in file.  If no
         file name is given, the typescript is saved in the file typescript.
    
         Options:
    
         -a      Append the output to file or typescript, retaining the prior con-
                 tents.
    
         -c COMMAND
                 Run the COMMAND rather than an interactive shell.  This makes it
                 easy for a script to capture the output of a program that behaves
                 differently when its stdout is not a tty.
    
         -f      Flush output after each write. This is nice for telecooperation:
                 One person does 'mkfifo foo; script -f foo' and another can
                 supervise real-time what is being done using 'cat foo'.
    
         -q      Be quiet.
    
         -t      Output timing data to standard error. This data contains two
                 fields, separated by a space. The first field indicates how much
                 time elapsed since the previous output. The second field indi-
                 cates how many characters were output this time. This information
                 can be used to replay typescripts with realistic typing and out-
                 put delays.
    
         The script ends when the forked shell exits (a control-D to exit the
         Bourne shell (sh(1)), and exit, logout or control-d (if ignoreeof is not
         set) for the C-shell, csh(1)).
    
         Certain interactive commands, such as vi(1), create garbage in the type-
         script file.  Script works best with commands that do not manipulate the
         screen, the results are meant to emulate a hardcopy terminal.
    
    
    

    ENVIRONMENT

         The following environment variable is utilized by script:
    
         SHELL  If the variable SHELL exists, the shell forked by script will be
                that shell. If SHELL is not set, the Bourne shell is assumed.
                (Most shells set this variable automatically).
    
    
    

    SEE ALSO

         csh(1) (for the history mechanism), scriptreplay(1).
