I tried the redirect like python x.py > x.out and got unexpected results. Although output was not successfully redirected into a text file as expected, the output shown lost most of the fancy formatting like colors and transliterations for non-English alphabets. Not the output is quite unreadable, but no more beeps.


I guess that is progress.

It seems like occasionally when program tries to display am non English character it beeps. The beep does not respond to computer’s volume or  mute control. I was looking for an option for less verbose output, but could not find one. Is there any other way to control it other than disabling motherboard speaker?

Have you tried redirecting stdout somewhere? e.g. `python x.py > x.out` (does windows have a stderr?)

Also, try mucking in the DOS CLI options. (Right click the title bar)
