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
