Hi epifanio,

which terminal emulator do you use?

If it's PuTTY you can easily configure a session log which will contain your output. e.g. the one of "cat".

In the PuTTY configuration window, select "Session - Logging" on the left.
On the right choose "Printable Output" and enter a filename and path of your choice.

Click "Apply". Now run your "cat" command, then go back to the Configuration window and turn off logging by selecting "None".

Edit the logfile using the Notepad. Remove unwanted parts of the output (e.g. shell prompts) and you're done.
