The idea with "script" is that you start the command you want to run by
typing it to the shell started by script.

If you want to start a command and just record all it's output then how
about using just plain old "nohup"?

Or are you actually trying to record user interactions, not just the
output of a command?  If so why can't the user just type the command
name after starting script?
