View your output

The Console view shows you the output of the execution of your program and lets you supply input to your program:

Figure 1. The Console view shows program output execution.

The console shows three different kinds of text, each in a different default color:

Note: If you're connecting to your target via qconn, your process's output all appears in the same color because qconn combines standard output and standard error into one stream.

You can choose different colors for these kinds of text on the preferences pages.

To access the Console view's customization dialog:

  1. From the menu, select Window > Preferences.
  2. In the left pane, select Run/Debug > Console.

You can have more than one Console view, which is useful if you're working on more than one application at once:

Remember that you can copy data from the console and paste it elsewhere.
