       scriptreplay - play back typescripts, using timing information

       scriptreplay [options] [-t] timingfile [typescript [divisor]]

       This  program  replays a typescript, using timing information to ensure
       that output happens at the same speed as it  originally	appeared  when
       the script was recorded.

       The  replay  simply  displays  the information again; the programs that
       were run when the typescript was being  recorded	 are  not  run	again.
       Since  the  same information is simply being displayed, scriptreplay is
       only guaranteed to work properly if run on the same  type  of  terminal
       the  typescript	was  recorded on.  Otherwise, any escape characters in
       the typescript may be interpreted differently by the terminal to	 which
       scriptreplay is sending its output.

       The  timing  information is what script(1) outputs to standard error if
       it is run with the -t parameter.

       By default, the typescript to display is	 assumed  to  be  named	 type-
       script,	but  other filenames may be specified, as the second parameter
       or with option -s.

       If the third parameter is specified, it is used as  a  speed-up	multi-
       plier.	For  example,  a  speed-up of 2 makes scriptreplay go twice as
       fast, and a speed-up of 0.1 makes it go ten times slower than the orig-
       inal session.

       The first three options will overide old-style arguments.

       -t, --timing file
	      File containing script timing output.

       -s, --typescript file
	      File containing the script terminal output.

       -d, --divisor number
	      Speed  up the replay displaying this number of times.  The argu-
	      ment is a floating point number.	It's called divisor because it
	      divides the timings by this factor.

       -V, --version
	      Display version information and exit.

       -h, --help
	      Display a help message and exit.

       % script --timing=file.tm script.out
       Script started, file is script.out
       % ls
       <etc, etc>
       % exit
       Script done, file is script.out
       % scriptreplay --timing file.tm --typescript script.out
