Just use

Wscript.Echo

It looks like that article captures the stdout of another program.  I want to be able to write to stdout so I can caputure the output with another program.

Something like

out = "text"
stdout.write(out).

I can't figure out how to do it though.

Thanks for your help.

That brings up a message box that says text regardless of how the program is called.  If you call it through the command prompt you get a message box rather then text.

I need it to send the text to the standerd out that can be read other programs.

Here is some code you can actually use that does what you requested. It's for .vbs a script that runs IPConfig.exe, and then echoes only the line of output that includes the IP address of the local computer. This script must be run from the command prompt(cscript) as all scripts that have STD objects must be.

Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objExecObject = objShell.Exec("%comspec% /c ipconfig.exe")

Do Until objExecObject.StdOut.AtEndOfStream
    strLine = objExecObject.StdOut.ReadLine()
    strIP = Instr(strLine,"Address")
    If strIP <> 0 Then
        Wscript.Echo strLine
    End If
Loop

Try this


in tt.vbs

Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objExecObject = objShell.Exec("%comspec% /c c:\temp\aa.vbs")

Do Until objExecObject.StdOut.AtEndOfStream
    strLine = objExecObject.StdOut.ReadLine()
    Wscript.Echo strLine
Loop


in aa.vbs

Wscript.Echo "test"
Wscript.Echo "test1"


When you run tt.vbs, you should see the line show on the cmd
