NAME
       script -	make record of a terminal session

SYNOPSIS
       script [-a] [filename]

DESCRIPTION
       The script utility 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.	See WARNINGS.

       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	Control-d is typed.

OPTIONS
       The following option is supported:

       -a	Appends	 the session record to filename, rather	than overwrit-
		ing it.

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

WARNINGS
       script  can  pose  a  security  risk  when used in directories that are
       writable	by other users (for example, /tmp), especially when run	 by  a

       before running script.
