Redirecting stdout/stdin in running process without P/Invoke

Hello!

My application has to use external native library writing to stdout and
stdin. My goal is to redirect output within running process (no chance to do
that in child process - Process class redirection is useless in that case)
and I would like to do it without reverting to C-run time library P/Invoke
calls.

Any ideas how to do that?

Will Console.SetIn() and Console.SetOut( ) do what you need?

Thanks for suggestion but it is not a solution in my case since it redirects
only managed output and input operations on Console class. It has no effect
on underlying stdin stdout streams attached to process - when you write from
unmanaged code to those streams output or input not redirected after call to
Console.SetOut( ) or Console.SetIn() . - so you end up with output on console.
It would be nice if Console would work that way but it doesnot.

Reason I asked is that I would prefer to avoid going to P/Invoke for
C-Runtime library calls as they are sometimes quite tricky, much more than
Win32 API.

From within a function in my own module I need to take the output from a Python module "A", which is sending data to stdout and which can not be changed and which I need to invoke as a top-level module, and pipe it into another function in my own module so that I can read it from stdin. Is there an easy way to do this ? The only way I can presently think to do this is through "system python A.py | python MyOwnModule.py", which seems a bit...

I'm having a problem with redirecting the StandardOutput of a process that I use to run a DOS program in my application.

I'm looking for a C/C++ library that can get access to the stdin and stdout of a process. I may invoke a external program in a C/C++ program, but how do write data into the stdin of the external program, and read data out from the stdout of the external program? Suggestions are much appreciated.

Hi I want a simple way to interactively remote debug a running python script which has no tty terminal attached to it. The scripts are running standalone (i.e. they are automatically started and have no terminal) and very infrequently come into error conditions which i want to understand and debug. The idea is that I do the debugging as shown below. Is that a good way of solving my problem? Do I need anything special
