scriptreplay


SYNOPSIS
       scriptreplay [options] [-t] timingfile [typescript [divisor]]

DESCRIPTION
       This program replays a typescript, using timing information to ensure
       that output happens at the same speed as it originally appeared when
       the script was recorded.

       The replay simply displays the information again; the programs that
       were run when the typescript was being recorded are not run again.
       Since the same information is simply being displayed, scriptreplay is
       only guaranteed to work properly if run on the same type of terminal
       the typescript was recorded on.  Otherwise, any escape characters in
       the typescript may be interpreted differently by the terminal to which
       scriptreplay is sending its output.

       The timing information is what script(1) outputs to standard error if
       it is run with the -t parameter.

       By default, the typescript to display is assumed to be named "type-
       script", but other filenames may be specified, as the second parameter
       or with option -s.

       If the third parameter is specified, it is used as a speed-up multi-
       plier.  For example, a speed-up of 2 makes scriptreplay go twice as
       fast, and a speed-up of 0.1 makes it go ten times slower than the orig-
       inal session.

OPTIONS
       The first three options will overide old-style arguments.

       -t, --timing file
              File containing script timing output.

       -s, --typescript file
              File containing the script terminal output.

       -d, --divisor number
              Speed up the replay displaying this number of times.  The argu-
              ment is a floating point number.  It's called divisor because it
              divides the timings by this factor.

       -V, --version
              Display version information and exit.

       -h, --help
              Display a help message and exit.

EXAMPLE
        % script -t 2> timingfile
        Script started, file is typescript
        % ls
        <etc, etc>
