Printing to MS-DOS Window

Question:
I would like to create a module that has no visual objects. It just prints to a MS-DOS window and then exits. Is this possible?

Answer:
Unfortunately, the only place that VB can print to is to windows and controls on the screen (You can print to the debug window within Visual Basic, but not outside of the debugger). Add that to the fact that Visual Basic applications are Windows applications,which cannot be run from a DOS session. You will get a message indicating that the application is Windows-based if you try to run it from a DOS prompt.
