Dump of Window Contents

My question: how can I dump a window's output history to a text file? It seems a waste
to define my own variable to store output if the window already stores everything.
You didn't say whether this is being done manually or from a program.
The manual method is simple:
Command: Copy Output History (a destination) File <pathname> (from window) <window>
The programmatic interface to this is the internal function
DW::OUTPUT-OUTPUT-HISTORY-AS-TEXT, which takes a window and an optional
output stream. I don't know whether it handles line wrapping and paging
itself or not. It might be easier to just call the function that the CP
command expands into:
(cp::com-copy-output-history `((:file ,pathname)) window)
