How to Capture xterm/cmdtool Output

When you are performing an upgrade/installation via command line, you might want to capture the steps/procedures in real-time. There is a convenient way of doing this task.

#script -a /tmp/outputfilename (whatever is typed after this command execution is captured)

When you are done, enter control d to terminate the capture process.
