I am running third party TCL functions with Java using the JavaTCL library.  I want to capture what is being sent to standard out for commands such as:

import tcl.lang.Interp;
import tcl.lang.TclException;

public class Temp {

      public Interp tclInterp;
        public static void main() {
                tclInterp = new Interp;
                tclInterp.eval("LoadConfig xxx.cfg");

I've tried redirecting the standard out to something like a ByteArrayOutputStream, however, that only captures what is specifically send to System.out from the program, it does not capture what is being sent to standard out from the command "tclInterp.eval("LoadConfig xxx.cfg");".

For example, if I do something like:

ByteArrayOutputStream out = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
System.setOut(new PrintStream(out));
tclInterp.eval("LoadConfig xxx.cfg");
String collected = new String(out.toByteArray());

the string "collected" will only contain "temp".

Anyone have any ideas?
