getting text from WinXP console

Does anyone know how I can read the ASCII text from a console window
(from another application) in WinXP?  It doesn't sound like a major
operation, but although I can find the window via pywin32, I haven't
been able to do anything with it.  I'd really just like to get the
window text into a string.

By "console window", I mean the sort of thing that comes up when you
run "command" (although this particular one is for the game NetHack).
