to collect logs from xterm window.
Hi all,

I am running a bash script on xterm wimdow. Now
i need to collect the logs from the xterm window.

my script

system ("xterm $bash_script");

Now I need to put the contents on xterm to a log file.

Please let me know how to redirect xterm contents to a log file.

Is your code fragment a piece of C code? If yes, then you can use popen() instead of system, and read back from the child process. The stuff you read back can then be written to a file of your choice.
man popen
If you want to do the work at a higher level, you could run a screen session in the xterm, and use its logging capabilities to capture the output of your script.
