Not an immediate solution for you, but maybe useful to someone... The
MSEide+MSEgui has a cross-platform console component which its IDE uses.
It supports input and output from that popup console widget. No external
console/terminal application is required.

Maybe if somebody is interested in finally implementing a x-platform
solution for Lazarus, they could look at Martin's code and port it to


fpGUI Toolkit - a cross-platform GUI toolkit using Free Pascal
