on my journey in exploring Linux I’ve come to another question i cannot answer in depth.
I’ve found that the command history is saved and how to avoid that, but what about stdout, stdin and stderr? When I call a command in the terminal is the output anywhere logged or saved like the command history?
It is relevant for a stateless device that shall not save or log any critical information coming from stdout.
So far I’ve discovered that nothing is logged and I could, if I wanted to, create my own logging routine. But I cannot answer this question in depth. Are there any hidden or deep functionalities, in the system, logging stdout?
According to my discoveries when I use and open a pipe stream like “popen” and catch the output, there should nothing be logged. Is that true?
Thank you for your help.
