In Turbo C, you could type, "go.exe >prn" and the output would go to the printer.  Is there any way to do this is Visual C++ 5.0?  Thanks.

Try entering the "> prn" as if it were part of the program's argument.  You do this in the program settings, under the debug tab, in the program arguments box.

Or you can open 'prn' in your program as an output stream, and redirect all the stdout to it.

q2quo, I suspect that LCLos wants a method that can be used for testing, not a method that requires altering the program.   However, that might not be possible and you method might be it.

Redirection works from the command line for apps built with VC++ 5.0 just like it does in Turbo C++.  That is, if you build for /SUBSYSTEM:CONSOLE, stdout can be redirected just the way you describe.

Mike, I believe what LCLos wants to do is be able to run the program from within VC (under the debugger etc) but have the ouput redirected.
