NAME

       scriptreplay - play back typescripts, using timing information

SYNOPSIS

       scriptreplay [options] [-t] timingfile [typescript [divisor]]

DESCRIPTION

       This program replays a typescript, using timing information to ensure that output happens
       at the same speed as it originally appeared when the script was recorded.

       The replay simply displays the information again; the programs that were run when the
       typescript was being recorded are not run again.  Since the same information is simply
       being displayed, scriptreplay is only guaranteed to work properly if run on the same type
       of terminal the typescript was recorded on.  Otherwise, any escape characters in the
       typescript may be interpreted differently by the terminal to which scriptreplay is sending
       its output.

       The timing information is what script(1) outputs to standard error if it is run with the
       -t parameter.

       By default, the typescript to display is assumed to be named "typescript", but other
       filenames may be specified, as the second parameter or with option -s.

       If the third parameter is specified, it is used as a speed-up multiplier.  For example, a
       speed-up of 2 makes scriptreplay go twice as fast, and a speed-up of 0.1 makes it go ten
       times slower than the original session.

OPTIONS

       The first three options will overide old-style arguments.

       -t, --timing file
              File containing script timing output.

       -s, --typescript file
              File containing the script terminal output.

       -d, --divisor number
              Speed up the replay displaying this number of times.  The argument is a floating
              point number.  It's called divisor because it divides the timings by this factor.

       -V, --version
              Display version information and exit.

       -h, --help
              Display a help message and exit.

EXAMPLE

        % script -t 2> timingfile
        Script started, file is typescript
        % ls
        <etc, etc>
        % exit
        Script done, file is typescript
        % scriptreplay timingfile
