That is a very neat tool that I hadn't come across. It works over ssh,
and cut-and-paste works well. Presumably you can avoid c&p by running
it inside a script command.

But the limitation that affects me*, compared with using gpm to
c&p from the original console, is that you can't run it until you can
access the computer remotely, by which time some information that I
would want to capture has scrolled off the screen out of conspy's grasp.

*My use case is normally capturing messages produced at boot up, most
of which have scrolled off the screen by the time you want to capture
them. This is why I posted
