    Is there a way to force the sh_stdOut to re-read the inputStream in case bytes have arrived since the last read.

    If I use Process I can use this construct to ensure I get all the data.
    Sub outputToCons
    Dim buf(consOut.BytesAvailable) As Byte
    If consOut.BytesAvailable > 0 Then
    Dim st As String = BytesToString(buf,0,buf.Length,"utf8")
      TextArea1.text = TextArea1.text & st
    End If
    If consOut.BytesAvailable>0 Then outputToCons
    End Sub
    Just wondered if there was a method within jshell I could use to do the same.

    Not sure that I understand. All the data will be available through the StdOut event. You can use StringBuilder or BytesBuilder to collect the data and work with it whenever you like.

    I will try and explain.

    (trying jshell and directly coding a Process)

    I am trying to get the output from a persistent command prompt window (started with /k).
    The first data returned from it is ok, the headers for the shell.
    But subsequent data returned on _stdOut in response to WriteToInputStream(…) is patchy, I may get the top part or the last few lines, but never the complete response unless it's really short.

    Where does consOut come from?

    Start with:
    Sub shl_StdOut(StdOut (Buffer() As Byte, Length As Int)
    Log(BytesToString(Buffer, 0, Length, "utf8"))
    End Sub
    It should print the full logs.

    Note that StdOut / StdErr events are raised on a different thread.

    consOut is the stream from p.getInputStream() ( the process inputstream from the processbuilder)
