stdout to file in tmp directory

When I run CLI application from bash I get some text messages generated into stdout, which is console window in that case. But running the same app from startup script with no CLI window opened I get all text messages put into file which is located in /tmp directory. Is it possible to disable this?

Depends on the app and also how your startup script calls it try
someapp 1>/dev/null 2>/dev/null
Or if you are using BASH
someapp &>/dev/null
