logging a shell/bash session?

Frequently, while installing software and such, I have the desire to log an entire bash/shell session, so that I can go back and document what I did.

How can this be accomplished?

hi there

just run history in that shell after u arer finished
and u will get a list of all the commands

Sure, but that's not going to let you see the output. I guess should make it clear that I need to see the output, also. That's important for long scripted sessions or reviewing a log compilation.

This may help. If that is what your asking...

kencaz, the irony in your signature makes me laugh. RTFP!

You guys need to READ the post before you reply! As I said, I need to log an entire bash/shell session. Input, output, everything!

Kencaz, you can't just redirect bash... you wouldn't be able to read the output... try `bash >> bash.log`... no go!

I finally found a solution on my own...

type `man script` for a solution.
