in thread capture STDOUT when some jerk opened STDOUT to /dev/tty

Sure, rub it in that we don't get to have screen at $work ;_;

You know I even tried ssh 0 cmd!! Using screen is a really cool idea though.

Originally I was just wondering if there was an obvious Perl solution to the problem that I was just either overlooking or of which I was unaware.

    Well, you can write your own tty logger using IO::Pty. It shouldn't be too complex.

    Another option may be to run the program through strace logging the interesting events. Then post-process that information to obtain a clean log of the data written to /dev/tty
