On the Mac if I run the editor on my plugin everything the plugin writes to stdout appear on the command line.
On Windows 10, if I run the validator then I see the output. But if I run the editor there is no output.
And this obviously behave the same way if I start a DAW (ex: Maschine) from the command line on the Mac vs Windows (meaning on the Mac I see the output of my plugin, but not on Windows).
So I have a few questions:
* why is the validator and the editor behaving differently (my hunch is that editor is a graphical app vs validator which is just a command line)?
* I am not very familiar with Windows, but I also have a hunch that Windows automatically disable stdout when starting a GUI appliaction. Is there a way to bypass this behavior?
* finally, since I am using logguru for my logging it is very easy for me to create a log file instead of using stdout. But I would like to be able to detect (for example in InitModule) how the application was started so that I don't create a log file if it is not necessary (for example when validator.exe runs, there is no need for a log file since the output works...)
