DESCRIPTION

   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 
   itself.

   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.
