NAME
  script - Makes a transcript of terminal session

SYNOPSIS

  script [-a] [file]

  The script command makes a transcript of everything printed on your termi-
  nal.

FLAGS

  -a  Appends the transcript to file rather than writing it to file.

DESCRIPTION

  The transcript is written to file, or appended to file if the -a flag is
  given.  If no filename 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 way).
