redirecting stdout and piplines also works on windows/dos

c:\python25\python.exe script.py > results.txt
c:\python25\python.exe script.py | more

Since this is supposed to by a Pythonic place...you can do file i/o in your

f = open('results.txt', 'w') # note that this will overwrite any data in
f.write('a line full of stuff\n')
