How to write output to an external text file in addition to the standard output stream, i.e. a notebook for a session with FE and stdout for command-line session?


I expected this to work but it apparently only writes Print output:

  OpenWrite["out.txt", FormatType -> OutputForm]

A workaround using $PrePrint:

output = OpenWrite["out.txt", FormatType -> OutputForm];

$PrePrint = (Write[output, #]; #) &;
  • $\begingroup$ Is it possible to use PutAppend[] and not OpenWrite[]? $\endgroup$
