First, when the code in question was designed, all we wanted was a way to capture stdout/stderr to allow compiler/programs to be started from within Multi-Edit and their output captured and returned to Multi-Edit. It was much later that the ability to have an interactive session was thought about. As far as I know there is no way to “capture” the contents of stdin from a command shell. It would be possible to do what you want in Multi-Edit. What could be done is to provide a window where the user would type in commands and when they hit enter, take the entered line and send it to the running program via a pipe to stdin and then received the outputs of stdout/stderr and write that into the same window. We have considered doing this but haven’t gotten around to actually writing the code yet.
