Another option would be to utilize the mouse edit buffer to capture screen content in "ASCII only", it requires a standard three button mouse and moused running correctly. Then you can select parts of the screen content or the whole screen using the left mouse button, then use Alt+PF2 (for example) to switch to another VT, login, start an editor (ee screen.txt) and then press the middle mouse button - the selected text will be put 1:1 into the file. Unelegang manual work, but sometimes useful (e. g. if you need screenshots for documentation purposes where a simple ASCII reproduction without colors or other attributes is needed). -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
