I open lxterminal, which shows up in
ps output as x-terminal-emulator. I then enter a command which prints it's output to STDOUT, which is visible on my screen. The command finishes, and I am shown another prompt.
The output of the previous command is still visible, so I can copy and paste it by GUI text selection, but I would like to be able to access it from a script.
Options for accessing this output that I can imagine:
- Is it stored somewhere, like in
- Is it in memory somewhere that I could read with low-level tools?
- Can I script my terminal emulator to store the output of every command while still outputting it normally?
- Is there a tool to scrape text from GTK windows that could access the full terminal window contents?
