[REBOL] Re: [console] open, close, trace, view, capture output, crypto, carl, i

Hi Marc, On Monday, May 12, 2003, 9:55:14 AM, you wrote: MM> Does somebody on this list know how to avoid writing on the console, MM> how to capture such output, how to close the console without closing the MM> main window, etc ??? You cannot close the console window AFAIK, however you can redirect any console output by replacing system/ports/output. (You could for e.g. write a little port handler that just inserts all the input into a string; then you can use it to capture your output into a string.)

Maybe you could do the same way as /Link does when opening the console, i.e. it just launches a script that HALTs. This gives you a new REBOL process with the console open; anything done at the console wouldn't interfere with your program.
