I would like suggestions on the best aproach on the following problem:

  My program calls an console application, the console application then outputs onto the screen its current status, there is alot of text in it, it prints one line every 1/3 sec or so, now I would like to be able to report the status of the program in my own VB application(the console is hidden).

 - I dont think piping to a file then reading it is a good idea, i tried that and through the process, it generates a file thats 5 mb in size..

The solution that is adopted will get full points

Thanks in advanced
