Hi all, Is there any way to set stdout back to the console? I tried this: FILE* oldStdout; *oldStdout = *stdout; //Causes the window app to crash. bummer. SDL_Init(...); fclose(stdout); *stdout = *oldStdout; Hrmmmm... Thanks.

I haven't tried this anytime but this is the solution that comes to my mind:


FILE *stdoutBackup;
FILE *sdloutBackup;

// Init
stdoutBackup = stdout;
SDL_Init();
sdloutBackup = stdout;
stdout = stdoutBackup;

....

// At exit
stdout = sdloutBackup;
SDL_Quit();

Edit: My apologies, I thought this thread was posted by the same person. Re-opened.

A Windows-only solution is detailed here.

Sorry about the mix-up.
