It sounds too easy to be impossible.

For what it's worth;

if you can that part of your application always read something particular
... say a port.
then run the application to be displayed with the os settings to redirect
output to the port?

For security's sake please use a port over 1024 ...
there would be a limitation with this method of text only, I think.

Any feedback from the more knowledgeable code slingers out there?

p.s. I'd love to see code on this ...
