| This demonstration redirects console output from a particular program's "stdout" (console output) to a textbox on a form. This type of redirection can be used to create a "front end" to a command line tool. I found the framework's built-in facilities for doing this less than satisfactory, so I wrote my own using windows APIs. It demonstrates the use of unsafe code (using pointers), and P/Invoke unmanaged APIs.
Written and tested on Windows XP Pro w/ SP1, and the .NET framework 1.1. No guarantees for any other OS/framework version.
