Console view

This view shows the output of the execution of your program and enables you to enter input for the program.

Console View

The console shows three different kinds of text, each in a different color:

  • Standard output
  • Standard error
  • Standard input

You can choose the different colors for these kinds of text on the preferences pages (Window > Preferences > Debug > Console).

Console View Context Menu

When you right-click in the Console view (or when you press Shift+F10 when the focus is on the Console view), you see the following options:

Edit options: Cut, Copy, Paste, Select All
These options perform the standard edit operations. Which options are available depends on where the focus is in the Console view. For example, you cannot paste text into the program output, but you can paste text to the bottom of the file.
Opens a Find/Replace dialog that operates only on the text in the Console view.
Go to Line
Opens a dialog that moves the focus to the line you specify. The dialog also indicates the total number of lines in the console buffer.
Terminates the process that is currently associated with the console.
