another suggestion from that page:

dumpoutput = function()
    local file = io.write([path to file dump here], "w+")
    for i, line in ipairs ([console output function]) do
        file:write("\n"..line);
    end
end

but i don’t know if that is valid for Ctrlr, and i don’t know
what ‘w+’ is.

he also says this:
“Note that the console output function has to store the output of the console in a table. To clear the console at the end, just do os.execute( "cls" ).”

edit: ah, ‘w+’ >
