That saves the whole session and is sometimes useful.  But, usually with command 
line programs you would just redirect the individual command's output to a file 
with '> filename' on the command line, or pipe through tee '|tee filename' if 
you want to see it at the same time.

Also, the terminal windows have a fairly big scroll-back buffer which you can 
increase with edit/profile so if you do decide to copy something after it 
happens you don't have to stop while it is still showing.
