Hi, let me explain what I am trying to do and how you may be able to help.
I am writing a windows shell (in VB due to the fact that it is the only language I know) to run some old Turbo Pascal programs. I have created a shell that works fine with basic windows commands such as dir, ping, ipconfig etc, but when I run these TP programs I cannot capture the text sent to the screen.
The author (an old friend) doesn't have the time to transfer them to Delphi, but may well be prepared to modify the original source code to meet my needs if it is very simple or alternatively allow me to do so. As I know nothing about Pascal, I was wondering if someone could explain the different ways Pascal writes to the screen, and which ways are possible to capture via redirection to a file, for example, by adding ">output.txt" to the end of the command line.
Thanks in advance.
