HI Tom,

This message answers a couple of questions but not the one you
really need - whats going wrong?!

Redirecting in DOS only puts stdout into the file but Pythons out put 
be going to stderr so doesn't go to the file.

However you can cut n paste from the DOS box using the menu that 
under the top left icon. You can use Edit->Mark to select the text to 
then Edit->Copy to grab it for pasting into an email.

You can also make Marking the default behaviour of a DOS box by 
the properties from the same menu - select QuickEdit mode.

Sorry I can't help with the real issue however!
