scriptlive - re-run session typescripts, using timing information
scriptlive [options] [-t] timingfile [-I|-B] typescript
This program re-runs a typescript, using stdin typescript and timing information to ensure that input happens in the same rhythm as it originally appeared when the script was recorded.
The session is executed in a newly created pseudoterminal with the user's $SHELL (or defaults to /bin/bash).
Be careful! Do not forget that the typescript may contains arbitrary commands. It is recommended to use "scriptreplay --stream in --log-in typescript" (or with --log-io instead of --log-in to verify the typescript before it is executed by scriptlive(1).
The timing information is what script(1) outputs to file specified by --log-timing. The typescript has to contain stdin information and it is what script(1) outputs to file specified by --log-in or --log-io.
- -I, --log-in file
- File containing script's terminal input.
- -B, --log-io file
- File containing script's terminal output and input.
- -t, --timing file
- File containing script's timing output. This option overrides old-style arguments.
- -T, --log-timing file
- Aliased to -t, maintained for compatibility with script(1) command-line options.
- -d, --divisor number
- Speed up the replay displaying this number of times. The argument is a floating-point number. It's called divisor because it divides the timings by this factor. This option overrides old-style arguments.
- -m, --maxdelay number
- Set the maximum delay between updates to number of seconds. The argument is a floating-point number. This can be used to avoid long pauses in the typescript replay.
- -V, --version
- Display version information and exit.
- -h, --help
- Display help text and exit.
% script --log-timing file.tm --log-in script.in Script started, file is script.out % date <etc, etc> % exit Script done, file is script.out % scriptlive --log-timing file.tm --log-in script.in
