Computer redirecting one terminal into an other??

Hi guys;

I want to show what am I doing on a terminal into another. I did something close but its not working really good.

Example: cat /dev/pts/12 >/dev/pts/13

where 12 is my terminal and 13 its the other terminal.

This is usefull for me to share my small unix knowledge to other people in my company, in an interactive mode.

Thanks a lot..

DISPLAY may work with some X apps, but should not alter a console.

What Unix system are you using, piltrafa?

I have some basics for you here.

at terminal 1 do the following

<run the command>script a
<type in or cat or whatever you want to display to the other terminal>

at terminal two
<run command> strings <path of a> a|tail -f

I hope this makes life easier
