Re: xdebconfigurator output to file

Thank you. "less" is exactly the program I was looking for. However, when I use the following command:

xdebconfigurator -x | less
it looks like the content gets loaded into less, but as soon as I use for example the arrow-keys or 'b','f','y' etc. the content disappears and I get a bunch of these:


loading a file into less doesn't seem to cause these problems.

the redirection will work for sure.
Try xdebconfigurator -x | more as well and of course xdebconfigurator -x | less for the less fans

I have just installed xdebconfigurator to get some clues about some of the hardware in my laptop. When I run "xdebconfigurator - x" there is so much information returned that I can't read all of it; I am on the command line and can't (or don't know how) to scroll back up to the beginning of the output. Therefore I was wondering if there is a way to redirect that output to a file. I was hoping I could do something like:

xdebconfigurator -x > output.txt


xdebconfigurator -x | pico -w output.txt

Obviously I am very new to Debian (and Linux) and greatefull for any suggestions.

Thank you,
