RUN(" ping localhost > c:\test.txt " )

Sleep(5000) // wait for 5 seconds

Read c:\test.txt using FileOpen, FileRead, FileClose functions.

Instad of RUN you can use ShellExecuteA API

Function long ShellExecuteA( long hWindow, string Operation, string File, string Parameters, string Directory, long Visible) Library 'shell32'
