You can use the script command. This command is not included in POSIX, but you'll find it useful to store in a file all keystrokes as well as output and error messages. You can later view the file. If you are doing some important work and wish to keep a log of all your activities, you should invoke this command immediately after you log in:
Script started, file is typescript
$ _ Note that this is another shell--child of the login shell
The prompt returns and all your keystrokes (including the one used to backspace) that you now enter here get recorded in the file 'typescript'. After your recording is over, you can terminate the session by entering exit.
Note: If you enter script filename, the session will be stored in the file filename rather than typescript, i.e, typescript is the default if no specific filename is specified.
You can now use cat filename or cat typescript, whichever the case may be, to view the recorded session.
If you wish to append a new session to an old file use:
script -a Appends the new session to typescript, same default rule applies here too
This is one way in which a system admin can keep track of the sessions. Hope it has been informative and useful. Cheers!
