how to log user commands in xterm without using "script" command
 
Hi.
I need to log the commands a user is typing in the xterm.
I can't use the script command since it collects also non printable data and so I get a lot of junk in the log file.
the internal option of logging from the xterm (-lf) is disabled so I can't use that as well.

Does anyone know of a different tool to log commands or how to clean the output of script easily?

Thanks,
Lilach

Code:

cat $HOME/.bash_history

Thanks for the suggestion but...
If they used bash I had no problem with the "script" command as well. The problem is with tcsh.

In any case I am looking for something that can be started and stopped. The history file can contain too much data or not enough.

Any other suggestions?
