My guess, though I'm not on windows ATM to test: any time the "print"
command is used, it outputs to the command line. And in windows, more often
than not that probably means "create".

So look through and find any "print" commands and comment those out, and my
guess it it should silence the window... but I don't know for sure.


To be considered stupid and to be told so is more painful than being called
gluttonous, mendacious, violent, lascivious, lazy, cowardly: every weakness,
every vice, has found its defenders, its rhetoric, its ennoblement and
exaltation, but stupidity hasn't. - Primo Levi
