    How to get the console output

    Hello, I'm wondering how to get the console output in c++ application in some string or file... For example, when the code -> system("pause"); executes, on the console the text "Press any key to continue" appears. How to get that text, or everything what is currently displayed on the console into a string or file, ???
    Thanks In Advance

    Simply use pipes (I think this is how they're called).

    In a shell (DOS) :
    myprogram.exe > output.txt

    Actually, that particular thing is called IO redirection.
