NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       script - Makes a transcript of terminal session

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       script [-a] [file]

       The  script  command  makes  a  transcript  of  everything
       printed on your terminal.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Appends the transcript to file rather than writing  it  to

OPERANDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  name  of  an  output file that will contain the transcript
 of the session.  If this parameter is omitted,  the
       file typescript is written.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  transcript is written to file, or appended to file if
       the -a option is given.  If no file  name  is  given,  the
       transcript is saved in the file typescript.

       The script ends when the forked shell exits.

       This program is useful when you are using a CRT and want a
       hard-copy record of the dialog (for example,  a  technical
       writer  might  create an example of a working session this

       If you specify the -a option and the file does not  exist,
       it is created.

       If  you  do not specify the -a option and the file exists,
       it is replaced.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The script command requires a streams based terminal.   In
       single user mode, streams may not be enabled.  Under these
       circumstances, script will exit with no  action.   If  you
       are  the  superuser and need to run this command in single
       user mode, use the following special instructions.

   Enabling Streams    [Toc]    [Back]
       If it is necessary to enable a streams environment in  the
       single  user mode, enter the command /sbin/init.d/streams.
       This command is available to the superuser only.
