Back in the days of dumb terminals, I used this a lot. Nowadays, with scrolling windows and easy cut and paste, it's not so necessary but it's not a bad idea to know about this in case you ever need it.

script
.. here you do whatever you need to do
CTRL-D
 

would capture whatever appeared on the screen betweeen it's invocation and the CTRL-D and put it in file called "typescript" (you could also specify the file you want to record into).

The file is raw data: linefeeds, backspaces, control characters are all faithfully recorded. That's sometimes useful, and is why I still do use this when I need that information.
