Output of Custom package scripts to terminal

Hi,

I am doing some testing with creation of depots on HP-UX systems (11.11).

Want to display some echo statements based on the processing during checkinstall, pre & postinstall scripts on the terminal.

The echo statements are getting directed to /var/adm/sw/swagent.log
I want to display them at the terminal itself.

How can i do it?
Thanks

Is this an option?

# tail -f /var/adm/sw/swagent.log

That isn't possible since it is swagent or the swagentd demon that is doing the work and it has no idea who started the swinstall.

You could of course send this info to a file and then tail that file as Paolo suggested.

If I tail the file, the output will be visible all at one go.

I wanted to display progress status.

eg.
Command 1 succeeded
Command 2 succeeded

Is this any other way to do that?
