How do I use pd -stderr on Windows?
How can I output all of the Pd windows messages to the terminal or to a file?
pd -stderr is a very handy debugging tool, it allows you to log all of the messages generated in a Pd session to the terminal or a file. This is very typical behavior in a UNIX program, but much less so on Windows. Nonetheless, it is possible to do this on Windows, but it takes a careful setup:
- load the
cmdshell (Start -> Run -> cmd)
C:\Program Files\pd\bin\pd.com -stderr
Now all of messages that normally go to the Pd window will be redirected to the cmd.exe window.
