Build 163

Console Application is a new build target in GuineuIDE. It's similar to Guineu.EXE. When you run a console application, Windows automatically opens a console window (DOS prompt). All output of ? and ?? is directed to this window. You can call the application from Explorer, the CMD prompt or a batch file. Output can be redirected to a file using the ">" operator or piped to a different application:

MyGuineuApp.EXE | MORE

A Guineu console application can create forms which are created as regular windows just like with the Managed Application (EXE) target. Guineu doesn't (yet) have a text based GUI like Microsoft FoxPro® DOS/Unix. When you execute a console application, the console waits for the application to terminate.
