TTYREC(1)                   General Commands Manual                  TTYREC(1)



NAME
       ttyrec - a tty recorder

SYNOPSIS
       ttyrec [-a][-u] [file]

DESCRIPTION
       Ttyrec is a tty recorder.  It is a derivative of script(1) command for
       recording timing information with microsecond accuracy as well.  It can
       record emacs -nw, vi, lynx, or any programs running on tty.

       Ttyrec invokes a shell and records the session until the shell exits.
       Recorded data can be played back with ttyplay(1).  If the argument file
       is given, the session will be recorded in that file.  Otherwise,
       ttyrecord is used as default.

OPTIONS
       -a     Append the output to file or ttyrecord, rather than overwriting
              it.

       -u     With this option, ttyrec automatically calls uudecode(1) and
              saves its output when uuencoded data appear on the session.  It
              allow you to transfer files from remote host.  You can call
              ttyrec with this option, login to the remote host and invoke
              uuencode(1) on it for the file you want to transfer.

       -e command
              Invoke command when ttyrec starts.



ENVIRONMENT
       SHELL  If the variable SHELL exists, the shell forked by ttyrec will be
              that shell.  If it's not set, the Bourne shell is assumed.
              (Most shells set this variable automatically).
