       ssuuddoorreeppllaayy plays back or lists the session logs created by ssuuddoo.  When
       replaying, ssuuddoorreeppllaayy can play the session back in real-time, or the
       playback speed may be adjusted (faster or slower) based on the command
       line options.  The _I_D should be a six character sequence of digits and
       upper case letters, e.g.  0100A5, which is logged by ssuuddoo when a
       command is run with session logging enabled.

       In list mode, ssuuddoorreeppllaayy can be used to find the ID of a session based
       on a number of criteria such as the user, tty or command run.

       In replay mode, if the standard output has not been redirected,
       ssuuddoorreeppllaayy will act on the following keys:

       ' ' (space)
               Pause output; press any key to resume.

       '<'     Reduce the playback speed by one half.

       '>'     Double the playback speed.

       ssuuddoorreeppllaayy accepts the following command line options:

       -d _d_i_r_e_c_t_o_r_y
                   Use _d_i_r_e_c_t_o_r_y to for the session logs instead of the
                   default, _/_v_a_r_/_l_o_g_/_s_u_d_o_-_i_o.

       -f _f_i_l_t_e_r   By default, ssuuddoorreeppllaayy will play back the command's
                   standard output, standard error and tty output.  The _-_f
                   option can be used to select which of these to output.  The
                   _f_i_l_t_e_r argument is a comma-separated list, consisting of
                   one or more of following: _s_t_d_o_u_t, _s_t_d_e_r_r, and _t_t_y_o_u_t.

       -l          Enable "list mode".  In this mode, ssuuddoorreeppllaayy will list
                   available session IDs.  If a _s_e_a_r_c_h _e_x_p_r_e_s_s_i_o_n is
                   specified, it will be used to restrict the IDs that are
                   displayed.  An expression is composed of the following

                   command _c_o_m_m_a_n_d _p_a_t_t_e_r_n
                           Evaluates to true if the command run matches
                           _c_o_m_m_a_n_d _p_a_t_t_e_r_n.  On systems with POSIX regular
                           expression support, the pattern may be an extended
                           regular expression.  On systems without POSIX

                           regular expression support, a simple substring
                           match is performed instead.

                   cwd _d_i_r_e_c_t_o_r_y
                           Evaluates to true if the command was run with the
                           specified current working directory.

                   fromdate _d_a_t_e
                           Evaluates to true if the command was run on or
                           after _d_a_t_e.  See "Date and time format" for a
                           description of supported date and time formats.

                   group _r_u_n_a_s___g_r_o_u_p
                           Evaluates to true if the command was run with the
                           specified _r_u_n_a_s___g_r_o_u_p.  Note that unless a
                           _r_u_n_a_s___g_r_o_u_p was explicitly specified when ssuuddoo was
                           run this field will be empty in the log.

                   runas _r_u_n_a_s___u_s_e_r
                           Evaluates to true if the command was run as the
                           specified _r_u_n_a_s___u_s_e_r.  Note that ssuuddoo runs commands
                           as user _r_o_o_t by default.

                   todate _d_a_t_e
                           Evaluates to true if the command was run on or
                           prior to _d_a_t_e.  See "Date and time format" for a
                           description of supported date and time formats.

                   tty _t_t_y Evaluates to true if the command was run on the
                           specified terminal device.  The _t_t_y should be
                           specified without the _/_d_e_v_/ prefix, e.g.  _t_t_y_0_1
                           instead of _/_d_e_v_/_t_t_y_0_1.

                   user _u_s_e_r _n_a_m_e
                           Evaluates to true if the ID matches a command run
                           by _u_s_e_r _n_a_m_e.

                   Predicates may be abbreviated to the shortest unique string
                   (currently all predicates may be shortened to a single

                   Predicates may be combined using _a_n_d, _o_r and _! operators as
                   well as '(' and ')' for grouping (note that parentheses
                   must generally be escaped from the shell).  The _a_n_d
                   operator is optional, adjacent predicates have an implied
                   _a_n_d unless separated by an _o_r.

       -m _m_a_x___w_a_i_t Specify an upper bound on how long to wait between key
                   presses or output data.  By default, ssuuddoo__rreeppllaayy will
                   accurately reproduce the delays between key presses or
                   program output.  However, this can be tedious when the
                   session includes long pauses.  When the _-_m option is
                   specified, ssuuddoorreeppllaayy will limit these pauses to at most
                   _m_a_x___w_a_i_t seconds.  The value may be specified as a floating

                   point number, .e.g. _2_._5.

       -s _s_p_e_e_d___f_a_c_t_o_r
                   This option causes ssuuddoorreeppllaayy to adjust the number of
                   seconds it will wait between key presses or program output.
                   This can be used to slow down or speed up the display.  For
                   example, a _s_p_e_e_d___f_a_c_t_o_r of _2 would make the output twice as
                   fast whereas a _s_p_e_e_d___f_a_c_t_o_r of <.5> would make the output
                   twice as slow.

       -V          The --VV (version) option causes ssuuddoorreeppllaayy to print its
                   version number and exit.
