The COMO utility provides a means of recording all input and output from the terminal to a specified record. By default a directory called &COMO% is created under the current directory to store this record, but can be overridden by specifying the path to another directory location.


  • COMO ON {directory} SessionID - Turn recording on to SessionID
  • COMO APPEND {directory} SessionID - Similar to COMO ON expect appends to SessionID
  • COMO OFF -Turn recording off.
  • COMO DELETE {directory} SessionID - Delete recording named SessionID.


The Unix script command can be used for this functionality if COMO is NOT part of your legacy application.


script - Start recording

[command execution]

Ctrl-D - Stop recording.

Recorded information can then be found in the typescript file.
