Process p = new Process();
p.StartInfo.FileName = "gmcs";
p.StartInfo.Arguments = "file1.cs file2.cs";
p.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
p.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
p.StartInfo.RedirectStandardError = true;
string output = p.StandardOutput.ReadToEnd();
output += p.StandardError.ReadToEnd();
The problem with this is that the order of the actual output will be lost.
Theoretically (correct me if I'm wrong) this could also cause a deadlock:
- p.StandardOutput.ReadToEnd() blocks until StandardOutput is closed.
- the process never closes StandardOutput as it is blocked writing to
StandardError (not entirely sure that this can happen - output buffers
So, is there a mono way of redirecting stderr to stdout without having to
write a shell script wrapper? Adding 2>&1 to StartInfo.Arguments doesn't
have any effect.
