Re: Reviewing the screen, help

Exactly. So no need to bring the regular context of screen reviewing here. Just the way to do it in the terminal which is the way I've done it for years, and frankly it's just easier. I can pipe my windows update stuff out to a text file and look later. No need to do with the object stuff when I don't need to.

But what if the person wants to read screen output for other reasons in real time?
Then they need to learn the commands to do so.   No one has tried to shut down conversation regarding those.

The two needs are not mutually exclusive and most people responding, including myself, were responding based upon the original poster's message which clearly implies, by the presence of the /? switch, that they were trying to review manual pages for various commands.   For that particular task dumping same to a text file for careful poring over is, without doubt, the best way to go.

A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep.
