This m-file allows you to export all text in the Command Window to a cell array of strings, each entry being a line of text from the window. The unparsed raw string is also available, if desired.
Operation is very simple - this file looks for the appropriate java object in the root window and gets text from it.
I was looking for a way to do this, particularly for error tracking in some software I maintain, and nobody seemed to have written up this method, so I present it here for you to use.
