Capturing text from console buffer ? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi, When one asks a question on this forum, the usual response are very often. What did you type, and what was the response. How can one capture the input/output in the console buffer in a file after one has typed commands and responses has been printed to the console ? I.e. I want to save the contents of the console buffer to a file. Regards Anton Erasmus...

    Hi,

    When one asks a question on this forum, the usual response are very
    often.

    What did you type, and what was the response.

    How can one capture the input/output in the console buffer in a file
    after one has typed commands and responses has been printed to
    the console ? I.e. I want to save the contents of the console buffer
    to a file.

    Here's another tool to toss in your box.

    To take a screenshot of whatever is on a particular tty, as root do:

    cat /dev/vcsN > file

    Where N is the number of the tty. You could change the ownership of
    /dev/vcs to use it(them) as a user.

    Thanks for all the answers.
    I think I'll try script first.

    About the name. I think you are probably one of the few that can
    actually pronounce it correctly. I sometimes get very odd
    pronunciation from english speakers. Luckely not as bad as
    a colleague whos surname is Drijfhout. :) For the english speakers
    Drijfhout is pronounced with the "ij" portion as the "ay" in say, and
    the "ou" as the 'o' sound in "hope".
