replays a typescript, using timing information to ensure
that output happens at the same speed as it originally
appeared when the script was recorded.
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.
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
"typescript", but other filenames may be
specified, as the second parameter or with option
If the third
parameter is specified, it is used as a speed-up multiplier.
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 original session.
The first three
options will overide old-style arguments.

Speed up the replay displaying
this number of times. The argument is a floating
point number. It’s called divisor because it divides
the timings by this factor.
