    You could create a small script, using the commands you need to use, and execute the script.
    That way, you would have a documented series of commands for review.

    Would that work for what you need?

    You can use the command "script". This creates a script of all the commands that you run.

    It's not perfect: colours and interactive programs make it behave strangely. But it can give you a log of the commands that you run.
