       script - make record of a terminal session

       script [-a] [filename]

       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.

       The following option is supported:

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

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

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Availability		     |SUNWcsu			   |
       |CSI			     |Enabled			   |


       script  can pose a security risk when used in directories that are writable by other users
       (for example, /tmp), especially when run by a privileged user, that is, root. Be sure that
       typescript is not a link before running script.
