Smile Linux version of windows Hyperterminal


Hello everyone,

My Question today,does Linux posses a version of its own terminal program,which allows a user to capture information to a text file,similar to windows hyper terminal.

I'm currently using Ubuntu 11.04,and I'm using the various terminal programs associated with it.But would like to use a program that also captures out to a text file such as eg notepad

Thanks for your help

I believe minicom is the closest equivalent.

The programme `script` will record all information from stdout, if that's what you want. GNU Screen has a logging option, too. If you just want to capture the output of a single command you can use the symbol '>' in bash, followed by a text file which the command output will be written to.

+1 to that


hyperterm and minicom are terminal programs that requires a modem or null modem connection, i think you are looking for I/O redirection

cutecom

You can run hyperterminal from wine.

Is it possible to use something like telnet or xterm or other terminal or putty or such?

in that case, try cutecom
it's also in the ubuntu repository (sudo apt-get install cutecom)
*edit*
putty is also in the ubuntu repositories and can do serial communication and logging
