7.3 DOS windows and message logs
7.3.1 Controlling use of a DOS window
A graphical Windows application does not usually have a console (or "DOS window").
You can achieve this by supplying the keyword argument console
:input when delivering your application.
7.3.2 Logging debugging messages
*terminal-io* from an application without a console will not ordinarily be visible to the user, so debugging messages should be written to a log file.
Log files are recommended for any complex application as they make it easier for you to get information back from your users.
You can use
dbg:log-bug-form for logging errors. See the
