Subject RE: [firebird-support] OT: Redirecting GBAK output to the standard output

OT? How can this thread be OT? The fact that I am wanting to capture the message output of GBAK in Delphi is irrelevant! I could be wanting to pipe it to a file, which is a topic that is more appropriate to the support list than any other.

Anyway, my thanks to all who have responded. I have managed to capture the STDERR output in Delphi.

Or use the Win32 GetTempFileName() call to get a temporary file name that
you can use.
