Don't mind if I am asking simple questions because I have to learn the basics.

How do I have to use "script"?
Do I have to enter "script" in the terminal before I start other commands, so that it will start to log my shell? or can I, after a command with output, enter "script" and it will log my output in a file typescript?

I tried several times, but it didn't work. It didn't record anything, when I opened the file typescript.

So can you show me an example how to use it?
What Options are useful?

script(1) is the classic way to log your shell (or any) session to a text file.

See <>.

There's more fancy stuff like asciinema but that seems like overkill here.

Kind regards,
