I am running an external process via system() and would like to
catch its output in something (variable, file whatever) in the same
order as I would see on screen. At the same time I'd like to keep
it appear on the screen as it might ask questions or need the attention
of the user otherwise.

I would use tee but I need it on less capable systems as well.

any takers ?

Yes it is for Nargile.

ps. has anyone tried it already ?
