I think in general, the way is to redirect the output to a file. For example ls -al > list.txt. As for screenshots, I've always used a digital camera...

Screenshot can be done with whatever screenie software you have.. .like ksnapshot(I think is the name) just type the command(program name) and --help, it will tell you have to force immediate screen shot, default settings rather than pulling up an x window.

I could tell you copy/paste in terminal emulator... but in true console, I don't know, never really tried.

Can you take a snapshot of the console if there's no gui?

I found this link that's supposed to be "Screenshot for Linux text console", but haven't tried it out http://bisqwit.iki.fi/source/snapscr....html#download
