Redirection is a mechanism for a process to supply input to and/or
output from another process; in other words, the input and/or output of another
process is redirected. Redirection is often called piping. In a Windows
environment, redirection applies to Console ("Command Prompt") windows.
Redirection works only for files that use Standard Input and Standard
Output. Not all Console programs use Standard Input and Standard Output, so
redirection will not work for all Console programs. The following is a sample of
executing a script, writing to the script's input and reading from the script's
Dim WshShell, oExec, RedirectedScript
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
RedirectedScript = """C:\Documents and Settings\Sam\My Documents\Projects\Scripts\VB\"
RedirectedScript = RedirectedScript & "Redirected.vbs"""
Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("CScript " & RedirectedScript)
oExec.StdIn.Close ' AtEndOfStream for redirected
While Not oExec.StdOut.AtEndOfStream
' I don't know if the following is necessary
While oExec.Status <> 1
Be sure to change the RedirectedScript variable as needed. The following
script can be used to test the above.
While Not WScript.StdIn.AtEndOfStream
