No, I didn't, it shows indeed stdout, and also work in cygwin shell.
  For the moment I didn't find out how to install correctly pd in 
cygwin,  (my goal is about running in xserver), so "./pd > pd.txt" 
doesn't load PureData correctly, pdtcl.dll couldn't be loaded by pd.tk 
script. I tried "pd.com > pd.txt", it displays stdout but doesn't write 
in text file.
