Question Redirect Xterm

I am using a program that opens up an Xterm window, where the simulation running sends a lot of messages to.

I would like to keep these messages, but I guess the buffer size is not large enough to show all of them, they get truncated. So my questions are:

1. How can I redirect the messages that are being sent to a particular Xterm (by some process that is already running and I have no access to) to a file?

2. How can I increase the default buffersize of Xterm?

Check out the man page for xterm. You may have to add it to your MANPATH to get the page (should be /usr/openwin/man)

If the process is already running and the xterm is started by a program - you may not be able to change it.

The default lines in buffer is 64. You can change that with the -sl option.

/usr/openwin/bin/xterm -sl 100 would give you a xterm with 100 lines saved in the scroll buffer.
