Does the S60 support a command line like *nix and Windows?

An alternative from within the script is:

     import sys

     sys.stdout = open(log_path, "w")

You might also want to capture stderr:

     import sys

     log_file = open(log_path, "w")
     sys.stdout = log_file
     sys.stderr = log_file
