The one command below results in all the output seen in the tab. Below that is the beginning of VIEW's display; note that some headers and blank lines are missing. All happens correctly if I do the same thing in a console.

Regarding the above, it's interesting to note that neither the text "Dir2" nor the text "2015-20" appear in the output of that command.

Did you forget to use /B for bare?

Or whatever the switches are to not show the header or the footer.

Here's a complete and slightly more concise one. First, in the TCMD tab, the (correct) contents on v:\test\, then the troublesome command (piped through VIEW) and its in-tab consequences. Second, the entire output shown by VIEW.

Sorry - I don't use View so I thought it was wanting a filelist, a file per line, to show. Not whatever STDIN was with the pipe.

Here is my errors with VIEW

Not reproducible here (either Vince's or Charles's problems).

Charles - your problem is definitely with your TCSTART (which is trying to do things it shouldn't when piping to an internal command in a child shell).

Vince, try it without your TCSTART / aliases / plugins.

And when that was over, these were in my history:
Code:
Volume in drive V is DATA  Serial number is c007:d3e4
Directory of  V:\*
2015-08-15  12:46  <DIR>  .
2015-08-15  12:46  <DIR>  ..
-03  14:21  42  filelist

Other crazy things happen ion TCMD with pipes ... things that don't happen in consoles. Here's the partial result of "dir | cls"
Code:
v:\> v:\> TCC: (Sys) The parameter is incorrect.
 "in"

v:\> TCC: Unknown command "Directory"

v:\> v:\> TCC: (Sys) The system cannot find the path specified.
 "V:\"

v:\> TCC: (Sys) The system cannot find the path specified.
 "V:\"

 "V:\empty"

v:\> TCC: (Sys) Access is denied.
 "V:\foo"

None of that is reproducible on any of my systems -- which isn't surprising, since there is absolutely no difference in pipe behavior when running in a console vs. running in TCMD. You've got a configuration difference between your standalone TCC processes & your TCMD tab windows.

If this was a TCMD / TCC issue, I'd already have thousands of complaints about it. I pipe in TCMD tab windows many times a day, as do most other TCMD users.

OK, the culprit was this line in TCSTART.
Code:
IF %_TCTAB == 1 TRANSIENT OFF
That's a recent addition and isn't in the TCSTART of any previous versions. I don't recall what I might have been testing, or what other reason I might have had for putting it there. I also don't understand exactly how it screwed things up.

_TRANSIENT returns 1 if the current shell is transient (started with a /C, see Command Line Options for details), or 0 otherwise

TRANSIENT allows you to change the shell's transient mode (i.e., whether it was started with a /C), so that you can make a transient session permanent (or vice versa).

So both are valid.
