capture the STDOUT
But these clip functions can only capture *after* the clip is launched
and on through to the end of the clip run and *without* any user
interactivity in between the start and finish of clip's run as far as
the entered command and captured output goes.
This means you must enter one command or a series of commands in the
clip and then *at_once* (a once only) capture the output of that for
there is no (no interactive way of) entering a command and then
sending some more commands with capture in between of each sent command.
But if you desire to do that latter: DOS language can used to
redirect STDOUT to a file (rather than the default of to console window).
I only know how to live monitor such (redirected to) file in Linux it
is the tail command will in realtime, live monitor and display
additions as they append/accrue to that file.
If there exists a way to do this in Win (reload file in editor?) then
you have a way of viewing (and saving) the captured STDOUT
