Hi, I am a relatively new Galaxy user. I am wondering if there is an example of a tool which allows users to view at the stdout/err of a tool live while it is still running to get a sense of progress it is making. The tools I have had experience with so far will save the stdout/err or an elaborate report as they are running and those results would be available for users only after the tool has completed running. Admittedly I have not searched through the toolshed exhaustively. Best, -- Ketan

However, if the tool's stdout is redirected to an output file shown in the Galaxy history you should be able to see that as the job runs. My MIRA wrapper does this, I have a Python wrapper script calling MIRA via subprocess and sending MIRA's stdout to a text file defined as one of the outputs in the Galaxy XML. Note that from Galaxy's point of view it was calling my Python script which produced a small amount on stdout - which is not available until the job finishes. Peter
