Writing messages to the Command Line (stdout)

Is it strictly necessary to have shell access for this? I'm thinking in 
terms of 95 and 98 compatibility, which I'll admit I'm not that familiar 
with as concerns RunRev.
Maybe you could get away with emulating it through a window that happens 
to look like a shell terminal...
If you _need_ input you could 'emulate' a DOS-GUI (remember those...!) 
and have point and click access instead of concerning yourself with 
parsing the text.
