SCRIPT: is an AmigaDOS device that gives the Amiga the
functionality of the "script" command in UNIX. SCRIPT: is
actually more general, in that it can echo the I/O passing
through any AmigaDOS device to any other device, including
For those of you not familiar with UNIX, the script command
causes the "screen" input and output to be saved to a file
(which is frequently then printed). This is useful for
things like demonstrating to your professor that your program
works correctly. It's like a terminal program's capture or
buffer feature, only for the shell.
On the Amiga, the command shell can use any device (usually CON:).
Some Workbench programs allow you to specify the device they use
via the WINDOW tooltype. Setting WINDOW to SCRIPT: allows you
to script programs run from Workbench. SCRIPT: captures the I/O
going through any device and echos it to any other device.
Echoing to the SCRIPT: device itself allows you to echo the I/O
to several devices at once.
