FLAC logging

Can flac.exe write a log of displayed messages (to record version no., compression ratio, commandline,  verify (-V) status etc., for archiving)? Also, how does it behave when (or if) -V returns 'not ok' (i.e. does it beep, pause, quit or what)?

cheers, tonderai.

no, in unix or win32+cygwin you can just redirect stderr.  not sure how to do it in a DOS box.

it will print an error and the exit code will be non-zero.

From win32 command prompt (2k & XP, you're stuck on 95-ME, I believe), you can use 2> instead of just > to redirect stderr to file.  I'm not sure how to redirect stderr to stdout though, but at least you can do something like: "flac --help 2> header.txt > flachelp.txt" to capture everything to file.
