When executing MakeOTF from the command line, it sends basic compile info to stdout. Is it possible to catch the same info when using the MakeOTF module from within a script as an imported module? I can't find anything about this in the docs and nothing seems to be returned as far as I can see.

I use MakeOTF in a build process that does a lot of other things as well in one run. An alternative is of course to make command line executions from within this process for each font in the build project, but that is not as smooth as using the module loaded in the build script.

Read Roberts would be the best one to answer this question, but he is on sabbatical right now. When he returns in a couple of weeks, I'm sure he will try to address this.

Sorry for the delay.

The makeotf library actually dumps to a temporary text file. MakeOTF.py then opens this and copies it to stdout. Look in MakeOTF.py just after the makeotf library is called, and you will see this, I think that the temp dump file name is set by one of the arguments to the makeotf library call, but am on vacation and check in the source code.
