    > is the redirection operator (so "programname >output.txt" is probably what you want). What this has to do with C programming, I don't know.

    Actually, that just redirects stdout. To also redirect stderr use the 2> operator, or use 2>&1 to combine stdout & stderr.
    Code:
    MyProg.exe > output.txt 2> errors.txt
    or
    MyProg.exe > output-and-errors.txt 2>&1

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
