SCRIPT(1)                   General Commands Manual                  SCRIPT(1)



NAME
       script - make typescript of a terminal session

SYNOPSIS
       script [ -a ] [ filename ]

DESCRIPTION
       script  makes a typescript of everything printed on your terminal.  The
       typescript is written to filename, or appended to filename  if  the  -a
       option is given.  It can be sent to the line printer later with lpr(1).
       If no file name is given, the typescript is saved  in  the  file  type-
       script.

       The script ends when the forked shell exits.

OPTIONS
       -a     Append  the script to the specified file instead of writing over
              it.

SEE ALSO
       lpr(1)

BUGS
       script places everything in the log file.  This is not what  the  naive
       user expects.
