	     how can I dump a window's output history to a text file?

	Try the "Show Output History" command. The underlying function is

    That's the right appproach.  More particularly, the command :Copy Output
    History does exactly what MKlein wants to do, and it's also built on
    DW::OUTPUT-OUTPUT-HISTORY-AS-TEXT.   The needed cliche for doing the
    equivalent thing (to a file) in a program is:

      (DW::OUTPUT-OUTPUT-HISTORY-AS-TEXT <dynamic window>))

Slightly simpler, and just as undocumented, is

                             <dynamic window>)

Where <destination> can be a Buffer, File, Kill Ring, Printer, Stream,
or Window.
