I'd adviceadvise to make a named pipe (mkfifo) and then write to that file. Then, read from it. You can always do that with things like tail, to minimize output, etc. Whenever you clear the pipe (read from it), it gets cleared, so the output is not preserved.

The other option would be to write everything to a file (much like a logfile) and then analyze it an any time. This would be the preferred action, if you want to preserve all output.
