You can direct output that is sent to the program input/output window with the output function like this:

//Redirect all printed output to a file 'myoutput.txt'
//'reset' means overwrite the file if it already exists
output file = myoutput.txt reset;

//print some output
print "This output will also be printed to my 'myoutput.txt'";

//Stop sending output to 'myoutput.txt'
output off;

You can also select some text with your mouse and copy it to the clipboard with CTRL+C and then paste it with CTRL+V. To copy the entire contents of the window, click in the window and then CTRL+A to select all, then CTRL+C to copy and CTRL+V to paste.


Hi, thanks for the reply. I will try the first method in my next run of the program. I am currently running a large program, and I tried the second method but copying it does not go all the way to the top. Is it possible to retrieve the existing output after the program finishes running?


CTRL+A will select all of the output that is currently in the program input/output window.

By default the program input/output window only keeps the last 20,000 lines. You can increase the number of lines that are kept by going to Tools->Preferences->Command and changing the number in 'Output Buffer Size (lines)'.
