|SCRIPT(1)||General Commands Manual||SCRIPT(1)|
scriptmakes 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,
scriptsaves all dialogue in file. If no file name is given, the typescript is saved in the file typescript. The options are as follows:
^D’) to exit the Bourne shell (sh(1)), and
logout, or control-D (if ignoreeof is not set) for the C-shell, csh(1)).
scriptwill exit with the status of 0 unless any of its child processes fail. In which case,
scriptwill return 1. Certain interactive commands, such as vi(1), create garbage in the typescript file.
