I use "write <val> to stdout", especially when sneaking up on a crash.
It goes to the console.
You might want to make a custom command that checks an error reporting
level and the environment and decides which methods to use (message
box, dialog box, stdout or a combination).

I don't know where it goes when an application is double-clicked. I
have used stdin and stdout when running a gui-rev from a command line,
but it was very buggy and IIRC ran into the classic Revolution
ambiguity of empty and end. I think I was told that use of stdin and
stdout in that manner was not appropriate use of Revolution.
