Although this is very cool, it does not help me in the case since I am trying to capture content in existing console windows.

    It will/does capture content of existing (win32) console windows. It only requires you to specify a regex to match the titlebar of the existing console window and it will capture whatever is currently in the buffer (displayed and scrolled off if the buffer is larger than the screen).

    If this is not what you require, then perhaps you could clarify what you are after?

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    The "good enough" maybe good enough for the now, and perfection maybe unobtainable, but that should not preclude us from striving for perfection, when time, circumstance or desire allow.
