Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

What do you mean for a script which is not in a file? In which way do you run this code? Redirecting output of a command/script does not mean modify the command/script. It is simply add some words to the command line itself!
The line of code which I posted IS what I execute in the shell, so that line is actualy my script.
So in in this context, adding redirection is actualy modifying the code.
Let me re-phrase the question ... is there a way to see the output (stdout) of a process which is run under my username under another session or is there a way to "fg" a process into my session from another session?
With session i refer to a master shell process ie. bash or sh or csh or whateversh.

it outputs right in front of me. What exactly are you trying to do? A simple ">> somefile" at the end of the command will output what you want to another file for easy acess, but i assume you already thought of that, which again raises the question of what exactly you want to do if its so hard to modify a command, or append something to it?
It seems to me i just can't get this question out correctly ...
Can i hijack into my session or at least see the output of a command/script/whatever which is already started.
So ... i canNOT:
- change anything in the command/script/whatever
- add redirection of output to file
- run it in a screen session
- walk on watter
- say "you're a moron" to my boss ... oh wait ... that i can ...
so as i said without modifying a command/script/whatever i MEANT without modifying anything ... adding stuff ie. redirection is also modifying
