start_message and end_message

#include <text_output.h>
void start_message(void);
void end_message(void);

Sometimes we wish to bring up a separate window containing simple message outputs (eg in gap4 this could be information about a reading that was clicked on). The start_message function clears the current message buffer and starts copying all subsequent output to the stdout window to this buffer.

The end_message function disables this message copying and display the current contents of the message buffer in a separate window.

At present, there are no Tcl interface to these routines.
