How to get output of CLI programm (mpg123.exe) during runtime? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi MSDN Community,

    is it possible in any way to get the outputs of a started executable like mpg123.exe during runtime???

    What I was testing (without luck) so far:

    mpg123.exe > streaming.txt

    mpg123.exe | tee.exe streaming.txt  (using GnuWin32 tee.exe)

    start /b "mpg123.exe > streaming.txt"

    All the time streaming.txt is still 0 bytes during runtime of mpg123 stream.

    But I want to access the output during runtime to visualize the changing stream messages...

    Does anyone know, if this is possible with Windows in any way?

    The Linux way took me 20 minutes to get it done:
    Adding " 2>&1 & " at the end of the pipe...
