Capture scp output

I have a simple script that uses scp to copy some files from one server to another. I want to capture the files that are copied but simple redirection to a file does not work.

So I want to capture this output from the scp command in a log file.

-bash-3.00$ scp -pr /export/jumpstart/Files server2:/export/jumpstart

That's a progress meter and would look awful if captured to a file as it contains cursor control codes.

Is there a way I could just capture the files that have been copied and their sizes, without the progress meter ?

This is not too good because stdin has to be a terminal:-


ssh </dev/tty >output -i .ssh/somekey -t user@localhost scp -i .ssh/somekey files.... user@localhost:directory/

But works by forcing the allocation of a pseudo-terminal so scp thinks it's stdout is writing to a terminal.

Another option would possibly to use 'script'.

I can't use script, as the scp is just a line in a script I am using to copy files. I just wanted to have the files that get copied listed in a log file.

Perhaps a copy/paste into a text file then. Smilie
