You can try the script command - it won't save it if there is a gui interface but will work on patches and pkgadd. Check out man script.

Don't put the script command inside a shell script. In your unix session, use it like this:
$ script myscript.txt
$ sqlplus ...
(whatever else you need to do ...)

script done on Tue Jan 15 08:39:31 2002

All input and output will go to myscript.txt.

as part of the installation i should take care of that.

so inside the shell script ,i should have a way of doing it.

so all the information redirects to a log file
