NAME
       script -	make record of a terminal session

SYNOPSIS
       script [-a] [filename]

DESCRIPTION
       script  makes a record of everything printed on your screen. The	record
       is written to filename. If no file name is given, the record  is	 saved
       in the file typescript.

       The   script  command  forks  and creates a sub-shell, according	to the
       value of	 $SHELL,  and records the text from this session.  The	script
       ends when the forked shell exits	or when	CTRL-D is typed.

OPTIONS
       -a    Append  the session record	to filename, rather than overwrite it.

NOTES
       script places everything	 that  appears	on  the	 screen	 in  filename,
       including prompts.
